The Lockheed Senior Peg was a proposal for a stealthy strategic bomber by the Lockheed Corporation together with Rockwell International that competed with and lost to a design by Northrop (Senior Ice), which would eventually become the Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit. It was created as part of the Advanced Technology Bomber competition, which started in 1979. It resembles a larger F-117 Nighthawk.[1][2][3][4][5]
