The Northrop Grumman B-21 Raider is an American strategic bomber under development for the United States Air Force (USAF) by Northrop Grumman. As part of the Long Range Strike Bomber (LRS-B) program, it is to be a long-range, stealth intercontinental strategic bomber for the USAF, able to deliver conventional and thermonuclear ωєαρσиs. The B-21 Raider is named in honor of the Doolittle Raids of World ധąɾ II when 80 men, led by Lt. Col.
