Aboulafia: few details available beyond name of new B-21 Raider

Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James announced this week that the new B-21 bomber will be known as the Raider. Beyond the name, though, not much is known about the aircraft; Congress voted over the summer to keep the price tag secret. Aircraft expert Richard Aboulafia of the Teal Group reviewed what we know, and what we don’t, about the aircraft on National Defense Week.
