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.
