Aircraft Overview:

Of all the aircraft in the world, the B-2 is likely the easiest to recognize on sight, which is ironic since the American government spared no expense keeping it secret until the first of several prototypes flew. This stealthy aircraft was designed in a way that hostiles could not anticipate its arrival, but its 22,600 Kg bomb load and a multitude of nuclear missiles would ensure they'd know when it had arrived. Named the B-2 Spirit, its advantage in battle is derived from its designation spirit; It operates like a ghost.
