    Ex-B-2 engineer guilty of helping China develop stealth cruise missile ‎

    A former B-2 stealth bomber engineer has been convicted of helping China develop a cruise missile that can evade heat-seeking, air-to-air missiles. Prosecutors said he sold the classified technology to pay for his luxury home in Hawaii.

    A federal jury in Honolulu convicted Noshir Gowadia on 14 of 17 counts of selling classified materials, money laundering and tax evasion. He was also charged with attempting to sell classified stealth technology to the Swiss government and businesses in Israel and Germany. Prosecutors said the 66-year-old Gowadia, who helped develop the propulsion system for the B-2 when he worked for Northrup from 1968 to 1986, designed the exhaust nozzle for the cruise missile so he could pay the $15,000-a-month mortgage on a luxury home that he built on Maui's north shore.

    if he would have given that data to India, rather then china, then at least public opinion in India would have been in his favour.
