USAF Wants To Buy 100 Long Range Strike-Bombers

The US Air Force wants to buy 100 Long Range Strike-Bombers, Secretary Deborah Lee James said today, a figure at the high end of the 80-to-100-aircraft purchase the service predicted earlier.
“I believe the number is 100,” James said today at an event at the National Press Club, offering a rare detail on the service's plans for the hush-hush contract recently awarded to Northrop Grumman.
The service has faced mounting pressure in recent months to procure more LRS-Bs than the planned 80 to 100 planes, particularly in the face of increased aggression from Russia and China.
