Note: I uploaded a new version of this craft.

Northrop Grumman and the USAF released their design for a new long range strike bomber yesterday. I set aside some time today to recreate it in KSP.

I used minimal mods: BDArmory, BD cockpit, B9 procedural wings, adjustable landing gear, and kerbpaint.

This is a true flying wing with no horizontal stabilisers. Yaw stability is generated with finely-tuned flaps. It’s completely stable at speeds of up to Mach 1.8 at high altitudes, or Mach 1 at low altitudes (sub 5000km). It carries 6 JDAM bombs in a MK2 cargo bay.

It can turn very quickly for a bomber, and is extremely stable. The craft uses no reaction wheels (reaction wheels for the cockpit are disabled). It can supercruise without afterburners.
