The Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit, also known as the Stealth Bomber, is an American strategic bomber aircraft manufactured by Northrop Grumman. It was featured in the 2008 film, Cloverfield and the 2016 Toho Godzilla film, Shin Godzilla.
As New York City was almost completely evacuated, the United States Air Force called in a B-2 Spirit bomber to attack Clover. The group aboard the last UH-1 Iroquois to depart from the city watched as the advanced aircraft flew towards Clover, dropping bunker buster bombs onto his back. The bombing run succeeded, seemingly killing the beast, and the bomber flew away to return to base.
As the UH-1 flew over the growing dust cloud, Clover suddenly lurched out of the gloom and struck the Helicopter, sending it falling towards the ground. Despite the bombs causing Clover actual pain, all they had succeeded in was stunning him temporarily.
A large portion of the city, including the Prime Minister's residence, was evacuated, and an MOP was dropped onto Godzilla's back. The bomb exploded, blasting off one of Godzilla's dorsal plates and causing him to bleed immensely. Godzilla roared in pain and immediately began giving off an intense purple glow, before spewing black smoke from his mouth, which ignited into a stream of fire, and then condensed into a focused purple beam. Godzilla fired the beam into the sky above him, slicing one B-2 clean in half.
Afterwards, the remaining bombers circled around and dropped their payloads onto Godzilla. Godzilla retaliated by launching atomic beams from between his dorsal plates, destroying the MOPs midair and obliterating the remaining bombers.
The B-2 Spirits in Shin Godzilla are equipped with Massive Ordnance Penetrator (MOP), extremely powerful bunker-buster bombs with the capacity to penetrate targets to a depth of 200 feet. These bombs were the only conventional weapons shown to be effective against Godzilla, severing one of his dorsal plates and drawing blood.
