Update on this pic:

This jet is apparently the RQ-180 drone. A classified deep penetrating ISR platform, which the USAF has yet to release details or photos of. The original pic was, per Aviation Week & Space Technology, taken down. Well done to the photographer and SVT poster.

Worse than that, here's a purported photo of the B-21 I found in an online Russian publication (can't tell if it's real or a chop):

Either way, general consensus in the military aviation community is that this is the basic concept - high aspect ratio, high sweep, two-edge center body.

(From the Russians I mean)

Looks just like the rendering on the Northrop site. Guessing propaganda.
