Is B-21 Bomber a flying saucer?

Why would I ask such a silly question?

Hell yeah, the B-21 Bomber’s a flying saucer, if not literally, then metaphorically.

In other words, it’s not merely some incremental evolution of the B-2, as the Air Force’s artistic rendering would have us believe.

It’s something different.

One intriguing factor in the whole B-21 story is the language used by military authorities. For example, they have repeatedly said the bomber is based on a “very mature” technology. Yet, they also have said that even though the underlying technology is mature, that doesn’t mean it’s known to the public.

Very mature, not known to the public.

Translation: They’ve been flying this thing, in one form or another, for 70 years or so.

But I’m not telling you anything you don’t already know. It’s all in Flying Saucers!
