Just wanted to share with this with you guys.  Its a patch I designed for a current B-1B flight instructor for his students.

Thats very good.  I think I'd have preferred the word "there" instead of "here", though.

I always thought the B-1 would be a good electronic warfare platform.

The internal volume is there for all kinds of jamming goodies and I imagine you could get most of them in without the need to clutter up the lines with any major lumps and bumps.

Mind you, the crews would likely take to nicknaming it "Electro-Bone". If the sense of humour I've seen typical to military women is followed, I can only imagine the sort of nose art an all female crew might come up with for that. It might preclude ever seeing one in the static park of an airshow.  ;D

Considering the recent release of the photograph of the fast boat target being taken out by a 2000lb LGB dropped by a B-1B, the obvious role would be Maritime Patrol Bomber.

A few years ago, a B-1 visitor to Calgary International (it couldn't land at Lethbridge Airport for the airshow there so over-nighted in Calgary) had to stay for a lot longer than planned.  It seems that the pilot was too eager to get the wings swung forward for take-off, he did it while taxiing around the perimeter track ---  which didn't have enough space to the perimeter fence ---- It took down about a hundred yards of the fence plus a good portion of the wing tip     :-X

Well, the rumour is that back in the early 90's (I believe) some were offered to both Australia and the UK...

Still waiting for someone to suggest the B-One R dedicated reconnaissance variant :)

:icon_sueno:
If so that would be as sad as the Leo 2s, Marders and M-109s offered at the same time, the Kidds offered in the early 2000s and Brigade of Ghurkhas offered in the early 70s

There is the BONE-R proposal with the R standing for "Regional" :

"Regional"?

Sounds like an airliner variant...which could be pretty cool...

Just don't give a fleet of them to Virgin.... the innuendos would never stop.
