The mighty Bomber “B-52”

NOTE:   visit     www.techenlife.com       for more details regarding this blog and military aviation!!

 

The Boeing B-52 Stratofortress is a long-range, subsonic, jet-powered strategic bomber designed and built by Boeing and operated by the United States Air Force (USAF).

Beginning with the successful contract bid on 5 June 1946, the B-52 design evolved from a straight-wing aircraft powered by sixturboprop engines to the final prototype YB-52 with eight turbojet engines and swept wings. The Stratofortress took its maiden flight in April 1952. Built to carry nuclear weapons for Cold War-era deterrence missions, the B-52 Stratofortress replaced theConvair B-36. Although a veteran of a number of wars, the Stratofortress has dropped only conventional munitions in combat. The B-52 carries up to 70,000 pounds (32,000 kg) of weapons phew.. . Its Stratofortress name is rarely used outside of official contexts; it has been referred to by Air Force personnel as the BUFF (Big Ugly Fat/Flying Fucker/Fellow). LOL 😀

This is one of the best , or i must say the best bomber ever developed in the history of aviation.

this much pay load can convert each brick on earth to sand.. this beast is gorgeous

With its 8 powerfull engines and with these much hot weapons, what do u expect from it..

only the presence of b 52 over enemy’s territory is sufficient for breaking their hearts and morals out..
