Hey guys. I was wondering if there was a specification sheet available for the B-2 Spirit. I checked a couple of places, but knowing me, I probably didn't look in the right place  Yeah sure If anyone has one, could you please post a link? thanks.

Cheers.

You won't find any detailed specs, they're still classified.

No, all details are in the public domain.
The B-2 specs are -
Speed- Fast enough
Range- Far enough
Ceiling- High enough
Payload- Whatever it takes!

Won't happen. It never was about invisibility, it's about smaller threat rings. Reduced threat rings + ALCM = "where did that come from". Dropping off ALCM's from well beyond standoff range is a threat not easily countered.

I should have known better than to ask for the spec sheet for a Boeing military aircraft with the base price of 1.157 billion dollars

While that is correct, thread rings are becoming larger and larger by time. The newest version of the Russian S-400 system is said to be able to detect and engage a B-2 at 60km. And russian statements of that sort are usually understated.

The B-2 can detect S-400 radar sites still early enough to avoid it, but flying slalom around SAM-sites eats the range ...

Yeah, you have a point. But remember, the range and stealthiness of cruise missiles themselves keeps growing too.
