1 min read

Air Force logoThe U.S. Air Force is set to release a request for proposal for a long-range strike bomber, Breaking Defense reported Wednesday.

Bill LaPlante, U.S. Air Force acquisition head, said the Air Force would issue the RFP in a few days, Colin Clark reports.

Clark writes each bomber is estimated to cost $550 million and the service plans to migrate avionics and other electronics systems from the F-22 and F-35 aircraft to minimize costs.

Breaking Defense reports the Boeing and Lockheed Martin team has been pursuing the program while Northrop Grumman recently worked on a bomber prototype.
