Različice Northrop YB-49

Northrop XB-35 in YB-35 sta bila eksperimentalna strateška bombnika, ki jih je razvijal Northrop v 1940ih za Ameriške letalske sile. Letali sta bili nekonvencionalne konfiguracije - t. i. "leteče krilo". Ta izvedba naj bi zaradi manjšega zračnega upora omogočala velik dolet, cilj je bil 16000 kilometrov s 4500 kilogramskim bojnim tovorom.

Na podlagi tega letala so razvili reaktivnega Northrop YB-49, vendar tudi slednji ni vstopil v serijsko proizvodnjo
