Will they at least be getting new carbines or will the Army dump their old M4s on them (now that the Army is moving to improved M4A1s)?

The aircraft's size has no correlation to its stealth capabilities. The B-2's radar cross section was significantly smaller than that of the F-117.
We don't have hundreds of B-52s in service anymore like we did during the height of the Cold War. Last I read we only had about 80 operational B-52s and those won't last forever. We need a new bomber sooner rather than later.
What do you think launches your cruise missiles? Bombers.

Corporations are going to behave like corporations, it's up to our elected officials to keep them in line, and if they fail to do that you're going to blame the corporations? Are you going to dismantle them and have the government take over? Will the government run them just as efficiently as the government runs everything else? What could possibly go wrong here?
Any other wisdom Oblatski?

You're talking about a production schedule that is going to last decades, if you can accurate predict events in 2025 or whenever I'd be surprised.

As for our allies needing a lightweight fighter could you tell me when we went back in time to the 1970s when hordes of MiG-21s and MiG-23s were a threat? On paper Canada would probably want an interceptor but they also want multi-role capabilities and dedicated interceptors don't do multi-role very well at all.

Apples and oranges, or rather rocket launchers and grenade launchers.
