On the US secret air base in Nevada, also known as Area 51, “unusual activity” was recorded.
So, after monitoring the base, the journalists of The Aviation came to the conclusion that now in the territory of Area 51 can pass secret tests of the new American heavy bomber B-21 Raider.
“We do not know exactly what is happening in Area 51, but after visiting the area in early November, we are fairly confident that something substantial is being prepared there,” the material says.
The authors of the article believe that the system of suppression of infrared radiation by the B-21 Raider case and its engines is being tested on meringue.
Their guesses are based on the fact that earlier in the area of Area 51 was observed the US Air Force F-117 Nighthawk, flying along with a light fighter of the fourth generation F-16, which was equipped with IRST (Infra-red search and track), designed for tracking Infrared radiation of jet aircraft and helicopters.
At the same time, a number of media reported earlier that a large hangar and a runway appeared in the base area, which can also be an indirect proof of the theory of journalists.
It is expected that the heavy bomber B-21 Raider, capable of carrying thermonuclear warheads, will be accepted by the US Air Force in 2025.
According to experts, the cost of one B-21 Raider can reach $600 million.
