B-52: The Bomber The U.S. is Sending to Destroy ISIS

Meet The B-52 Bomber

In case you haven’t heard, the B-52 Bomber is being used in the Middle East, and for good reason. It’s a highly effective weapon.

The B-52 Stratofortress is a long-range, subsonic, jet-powered strategic bomber. It was designed and built by Boeing and has been operated by the United States Air Force (USAF) since the 1950s. The bomber is capable of carrying up to 70,000 pounds (32,000 kg) of weapons, and has a typical combat range of more than 8,800 miles (14,080 km) without aerial refueling.
