Rockwell B-1R Bomber Form


El Rockwell B-1R, fue una propuesta de modernización para la flota de B-1Bs. Sus cambios externos incluian la adopcion de una cola en "V", nuevos motores Pratt & Whitney F119, los mismos motores que lleva el F-22, pero sin vectorización de empuje.

Los cambios internos incluian la adpcion de un radas APG-80, llevado por el F-16 Block60. Otro de los cambios incluia una actualización de la capacidad de armamento del bombardero, incluyendo misiles aire aire como el AIM-120 AMRAAM y dos contenedores de contramedidas electronicas AN/ALQ-99, como los llevados por el EA-6B Prowler o el EA-18G Growler.

Las prestaciones de este nuevo bombardeo le permitian mantener una velocidad de supercrucero durante el vuelo (Mach 2+). El proyecto no paso de las mesas de diseño

The Rockwell B-1R, was a proposal to modernize the fleet of B-1Bs. Its external changes included the adoption of a tail assembly "V", new Pratt & Whitney F119, the same engine that carries the F-22, but without thrust vectoring.

Internal changes included adpcion an APG-80 AESA radar, carried by the F-16 Block60. Another change included an update of the bomber's weapons capability, including air-air missiles like the AIM-120 AMRAAM and two electronic countermeasures AN/ALQ-99 containers, such as those carried by the
EA-6B Prowler and EA-18G Growler.

The benefits of this new bombing permitted him to maintain a speed of supercruise during flight (Mach 2 +) with a reduction of 20% of its maximum range. The project does not pass the design table

Remarks:
Proposal bomber by Rockwell to 2014-18 regional bomber, no enter in service. Fitted with DataLink, ESM, Satcom. Rememorized by F-22 Power Plant, no vectorized Trust capable. Super cruiser speed allowed, combat range reduced in 20%. New radar with AESA capability, AIM-120 AMRRAM and other Air to Air missile allowed. Reduce range of hostile radars within the radar horizon by 40%.
