DoD announces pursuit of B61-13 nuclear bomb

The United States will modernize the B61, its gravity nuclear bomb (i.e. without propellant), with a new version designated B61-13, subject to authorization and appropriation by Congress. The B61-13 should be adapted to modern aircraft like the F35 and B21.
