Has always reminded me of a B-58
Looks to me like a very large, expensive target drone.
The high speed version of the B-1B. Still plenty around. I think China flies a version, too.This would be one of the launching platforms for Russia's hypersonic, anti-ship cruise missiles. We have probably reached the end of air craft carrier dominance, but they are plenty good enough to hammer Third World and some Second World countries.
