Flying Wing: The YB-35’s stealth characteristics negate the impact of radar, reducing the interception value of all fighters by 1.

Availability:  The US must develop heavy bombers and then pay and then acquire an additional 15 development points (Global War ) or roll heavy bombers a second time (Axis & Allies)


The Northrop XB-35 and YB-35 were experimental heavy bomber aircraft developed by the Northrop Corporation for the United States Army Air Forces during and shortly after World War II. The airplane used the radical and potentially very efficient flying wing design, in which the tail section and fuselage are eliminated and all payload is carried in a thick wing. Only prototype and pre-production aircraft were built, although interest remained strong enough to warrant further development of the design as a jet bomber, under the designation YB-49.
