WASHINGTON, January 14. /TASS/. The US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel says the US needs to create a new generation strategic bomber to increase the country's deterrence potential. Hagel flew to Whiteman Air Force Base where 20 B-2 bombers are deployed. The B-2 bomber is considered the only long-range nuclear-capable bomber using stealth technology. The US Air Force long-range bomber fleet also incudes B-52 and B-1 bombers.
Pentagon officials want to start replacing the existing models with a new long-range stealth plane by the mid 2020's. The B-2 domber will be deployed by the mid-2040's. Such companies as Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman are currently working to develop the new bomber.
