Shown here is an earlier model, whose engine configuration has since been revised for optimal cost-performance.
The B2-X Century Bomber is the largest, most durable fighting aircraft in the Allied arsenal.
Century Bombers excel at laying waste to armor divisions or military facilities,
then para-dropping soldiers in to clean up the mess.
Battlefield reconnaissance has revealed at least these facts about the Century Bomber:
• Carpet bombing -- The Century is intended for use against enemy strongholds, as its bomb load-out makes up for a lack of overall accuracy with a great deal of punch. A given bomber tends to release its payload leading up to its coordinates, to ensure the maximum number of bombs is on target.
• Bring an entourage -- While the Century is respectably swift for a heavy bomber, it of course is slower than, say, a Soviet air superiority fighter. The Century is able to shrug off some anti-aircraft fire en route to its destination, but ultimately requires support to continue operating in enemy airspace.
• Plenty of parachutes -- Infantry loaded in a Century Bomber are always prepared to deploy via parachute. Parachutists of course are vulnerable to anti-aircraft fire.
• A flying bomb -- Though the Century is highly unlikely to explode in midair, this aircraft is fitted with so many sophisticated systems that it is designed to detonate and combust on impact, should it crash. As a result, the Soviets have yet to recover any data from the few Centuries that have gone down.
