The US Air Force has announced the air force bases that will provide testing and maintenance support for the B-21 Raider advanced bomber.

Tinker Air Force Base (AFB), Oklahoma, will coordinate depot maintenance and sustainment of the B-21 Raider at its Air Logistics Complex, supported by Robins AFB, Georgia, and Hill AFB, Utah, to ensure that the B-21 is maintained and, when necessary, overhauled and upgraded.

Edwards AFB was selected as the location of the B-21's Combined Test Force. The base is home to the Air Force Test Center, which leads testing and evaluation for the air force to ensure aircraft and other equipment meet rigorous standards.

The B-21 aircraft, being designed and developed at Northrop Grumman's Melbourne facility, is currently in the engineering and manufacturing development phase of the acquisition cycle.
