As the B-12 Annihilator was phased out of service in 2031, there came a need for a new strategic bomber as a sucessor to the B-12 and B-21 Lancestrike.
Designed as a collaboration by Palleta engineering and NEMF, the B-30 Switchblade supersonic Long-range strategic bomber was chosen by the Erandian Air force.
A Swing-wing heavy bomber, the B-30 is capable of reaching speeds of up to 3000 KM/H with it's powerful RD-18HL engines. it has a range of 13000 Km and a service ceiling of 18 kilometers.
