I spoke in posts and email about a few projects that the B-21 absolutely has to be upgraded for, and here it is one of the major ones. (I was shocked to see that it went out into the white, but here is one weapon the B-21 absolutely has to have in her armory!)

Hypersonic anti-shipping missile capability.


The initial contracts to Raytheon and Lockheed Martin will provide technical maturation and development through preliminary design review of the propulsion system required for a carrier suitable hypersonic weapon system. The contract period of performance for each award will end in December 2024 with each company's preliminary design review working towards a prototype flight test.

HALO will be a carrier-based, high speed, long range air-launched weapon that will provide greater anti-surface warfare capability than what’s available today.
