A B1 bomber going fishing
This is real projection of power.
Its the last of the pre 'stealth' super bombers. The B-1 costs an awful lot of money and was designed to fly ever so low and fast to avoid the enemy radar. Even if it was detected (and it is loud), it is hard to hit a 1000+ mph aircraft flying at 200 foot! Its 20th Century thinking.
Still it is not as effective as a stealthy B-2 bomber armed with Satnav guided bombs, but that lot is even more expensive.
