B-52 bombers are the longest-serving American Air Force long-range subsonic strategic bombers, mainly used for long-range conventional and nuclear bombing missions. Its design was started in October 1948, and the first prototypes flew in 1952. Production B-52B began to be outfitted for the army in June 1955, and subsequently expanded to 8 types: A,B,C,D,E,F,G, and H. Production of B-52s stopped in October 1962, with 744 bombers produced total. Now, the B-52 together with the B-1B and B-2 bombers, forms the US air force’s strategic bombers.
America specially developed the air-launched AGM-86B cruise missile for bombers. The AGM-86B is a small and light-weight subsonic cruise missile. The size of it is similar to the AGM-6g short-range attack missiles, and so is its weight (namely 1,360kg), able to use a nuclear warhead equivalent to 200,000 tons of TNT or a conventional warhead of 454 kg high explosive, with high firepower, convenient to carry, an a maximum firing range of 2,500 kilometers. B-52H bombers can carry 20 missiles of this type.
