The Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit is a multi-role stealth heavy bomber, capable of deploying both conventional and nuclear weapons. It is operated exclusively by the United States Air Force. Its development was a milestone in the modernization program of the U.S. Department of Defense. The B-2's stealth technology is intended to aid the aircraft's penetration role in order to survive extremely dense anti-aircraft defenses otherwise considered impenetrable by combat aircraft.

In its internal bomb-bay, the B2 Spirit can carry either;

  • 16 x AGM 129 ACM's
  • 16 x B61 Strategic nuclear freefall bombs
  • 16 x B63 Strategic nuclear freefall bombs
  • 80 x Mk82 bombs
  • 16 x Mk84 bombs
  • 16 x JDAM's
