The B-21 Raider will be unveiled today.

The B-21 Raider is the Air Force's first new bomber in over 30 years and has been called the most advanced military aircraft ever built. According to statements given to Air Force Magazine, the aircraft isn't expected to make its first flight until 2023, even though it will be revealed at an event.

The B-21 Raider will be unveiled at a ceremony on December 2nd. In the morning on December 3. The ceremony can be watched on the internet.

The Air Force has a secretive space plane.

The B-21 Raider has been described as the "world's first sixth- generation aircraft (opens in new tab)," a term that describes its level of technological sophistication. The B-21 stands above other production aircraft in terms of its digital capabilities and its ability to operate in either crewed or uncrewed operations. Nuclear and conventional weapons will be deployed by the bomber.

Even after the jet makes its first flight, there will be a lot of unanswered questions about its capabilities. There were some details released to the public before it was unveiled. The B-21 stealth bomber will likely be able to coordinate and communicate with other assets, according to a fact sheet.

stealth capabilities will be the most revolutionary feature of the B-21 Raider. Not much is known about the stealth systems the bomber will have. The B-21 will defeat the anti-access, area-denial systems it will face, according to the statement from the company.

Software used in the aircraft itself and in its manufacturing process are some of the things that make the B-21 so sophisticated. Much of its design and manufacturing was done using a software-based digital twin to help reduce production costs, according to its maker.

An open software architecture will allow seamless integration of upgraded technologies in the future.

During World War Two, the tide of the Pacific theater was turned in favor of the allied forces after the daring April 1942 raid on Japan.

Six B-21s are in various stages of assembly at the Palmdale plant. The B-21 Raider will cost the Air Force around 700 million dollars.
