Developed by the U.S. company Northrop Grumman low-profile strategic bomber B-21 Raider, which will be presented on December 2, will be the first system of the sixth generation in the arsenal of the U.S. Air Force (Air Force), Defense News reported.

Tom Jones, president of Northrop Grumman's Aircraft Systems Division, noted that low-visibility technology, the use of open architecture and Joint All-Domain Command and Control (JADC2) technologies allow the B-21 to be classified as a sixth-generation aircraft.

Jones said the B-21 will undergo additional testing over the next few months in preparation for its first flight, which is planned for 2023. Flight tests will take place at Edwards Air Force Base in California.
