B-21 Doolittle Raider Names Not Used - Chinese NSA Op

The real B-25 Doolittle Raiders takeoff in 1942. Operation was a propaganda masterstroke. But now, in 2016, the word "Doolittle" that goes with Raider will come to haunt the B-21 Program.

Now that the B-21 has been named the post-Doolittle "Raider" we workers and peasants at Chinese NSA have done revolutionary mostest to capture Pentagon list of B-21 names binned in great shredder of Cyberspace.

Some B-21 names are seriousBoomerang, Ghost, Horizon, LeMay (half serious), Liberator, Dauntless, Mitchell, Night Fury, Phoenix, Shadow, Fortress (boring), Stingray, Valkyrie, Victory, Wraith, Zeus, Phantom.

Vampire was a legitimate name for a jet and its "V"ness and mainly wing nature would have suited the B-21 better than Doolittle Raider.

All nice names but very boring. So our very best Agents of Influence and Moles in Congress, Pentagon etc bent on PR sabotage offered following names to bugger-up B-21 project.

Gonzo 

Zombie

Gretchen

Kermit

The USAF has used the Raider name before.
Its was a tail dragger transport plane with 3 engines developed by Northrop after the end of WW2.
The YC-124A is not mentioned on Nothrop Grummans website - for good reasons ! It looked like someone had updated Fords trimotor.

Hi Ztev

Thanks for https://warisboring.com/the-u-s-air-forces-first-raider-was-a-funky-transport-plane-2395fb65ff3#

The Raider YC-124A transport certainly is an ugly throwback.
