Northrop Grumman Reveals FB-23 Design
After some initial panic over a model of the FB-23 showing up for sale on the Internet, Northrop Grumman has confirmed the design was one of several next-generation, long-range strike concepts it submitted for the U.S. Air Force's analysis of alternatives. It is a larger, bomb-carrying version of the YF-23 that competed against Lockheed Martin's YF-22. Concepts ranged from updated versions of the B-2 to supersonic, unmanned aircraft. Another model was displayed at the Air Force Assn. convention in Washington last week.
