The US Air Force, together with the Department of Energy's National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), earlier this month tested a B61-12 non-nuclear bomb, NNSA announced.

"These qualification flight tests demonstrate the B61-12 design meets system requirements and illustrate the continued progress of the B61-12 life extension program to meet national security requirements," said Brig. Gen. Michael Lutton, NNSA's principal assistant deputy administrator for military application.

"The achievement is also a testament to the dedication of our workforce and the enduring partnership between NNSA and the U.S. Air Force," he added in the release.

The F-35 Lightning II Joint Program Office has also been working on integrating the latest modification into its weapons arsenal.
