Gates sees new U.S. bomber fielded in 2020s
U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said he did not expect a new bomber for the U.S. Air Force to be fielded until the late 2020s, a decade later than the previous Pentagon plan. Gates said the Pentagon would study exactly what was needed in the new bomber before proceeding, including whether the bomber would be manned or unmanned, and would fly close to targets or stand off.
