If we went to 4 engines we'd have a lot of substantial changes that would make it cost prohibitive. Ill name just a few. Re-do all external weapon certifications. Integrate an auto-rudder system to help controllability if an outboard engine fails. Beef up engine struts and wings to take the ...

We have a limit on the number of nuclear capable bombers. In order to comply with the New START treaty signed a couple years ago, we are going to be converting some of the 76 we currently have to be conventional only. If we added to the 76 total, the ones we add would also have to be conventional ...
