    Along with our discoveries of the Kipunji, Matilda's horned viper and other reptiles and frogs, this new chameleon really seals the deal as regards the boundary of the Eastern Arcs, it is very clear now that the so-called Makambako Gap doesn't exist zoologically, and that the Southern Highlands is every bit as biodiverse and endemic-rich as all other Eastern Arc Mountains. With its own unique fauna and flora the region thus warrants as much protection as we can possibly afford it.

The military has kept details of the wish list for its new bomber classified.

Some industry experts believe this was a representation of Northrop ’s vision for the new mysterious bomber.

The B-2 aircraft has been a mainstay for the military with The B-2 aircraft stealth long-range and big payload strike bomber capabilities. Related : Navy taps Raytheon for sophisticated' last chance' gun system The B-2 Spirit Bomber carries a crew of two and took its first flight in 1989 and entered the operational fleet in 1993. The original B-2 fleet was 21 aircraft. The four 19,000-pound-thrust F118-GE engines give the B-2 its power, allowing it to fly more than 600 miles per hour. With a 172-foot wingspan, the B-2 can fly to a ceiling of 50,000 feet. B-2 is built for stealth. During the Cold War, it was designed to beat air defense systems, penetrating deep into Soviet Union airspace and deliver a nuclear bomb if necessary. Cold War design allows it to evade radar and makes it tough to detect. Instead of metal, the structure is made from advanced composites like resin-impregnated graphite fiber.

If the aircraft is refueled while in the air, then it can fly even farther - an additional 4,000 miles without landing. The B-2 Spirit Bomber can carry more than 40,000 pounds of nuclear or conventional munitions – that ’s the kind of power that can dramatically change the battle space in one flight. The aircraft is designed to deliver these munitions precisely on target even in adverse weather conditions. Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri is home to the majority of the current B-2 fleet.

The aircraft ’s ability to receive updated target data while in the midst of a mission was also improved. Other upgrade programs improved the B-2 ’s capabilities to collect, process and then distribute battlefield data to teams throughout the world. The sleek B-2 has a unique flying wing design that supports its radar evasion and hard to detect design. The Super Bowl commercial showed a sort of bat wing shape, similar to B-2, but the specs of the new plane have remained secret. The Air Force has made the right decision for our nation's security, as the company that developed and delivered the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber, we look forward to providing The Air Force with a highly-capable and affordable next-generation Long-Range Strike Bomber.
