US to send nuclear-capable B-52 warplanes to bomb ISIS as military ups campaign to eradicate terrorists in Syria and Iraq

from Daily Mail:


The United States is set to send nuclear-capable B-52 warplanes to bomb ISIS.

The warplanes will start attacking terrorist targets in Syria and Iraq in April as they replace B-1s that have returned to the US for updates.

It is not clear how many of the mammoth B-52s and airmen will take part in the deployment, that could see the bombers based at an American airbase in Qatar.

The B-52 Stratofortress can carry a 70,000-ton payload and can also carry nuclear warheads, although these are highly unlikely to be used on ISIS fighters because of the inevitable collateral damage.

The planes – nicknamed ‘big ugly fat fellas’ – can drop ‘gravity bombs, cluster bombs, precision guided (cruise) missiles and joint direct attack munitions’, according to Air Force Times.

The $84million bombers can also drop unguided bombs and were previously used in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

    “The United States is set to send nuclear-capable B-52 warplanes to bomb ISIS.”

    With the miniaturization of US nuclear weapons, virtually ALL USAF aircraft are “nuclear capable”. B-52s are effective IF the US controls the air-space in which they operate. If not, they have the radar signature of flying barns and are VERY susceptible to AA missiles. The saving grace of the B-52 is that it can carry and drop a LOT of bombs that can completely plaster a large area wherein the enemy may be hiding or dug in.

    If Russia was able to shut down the USS Donald Cook I don’t see why they wouldn’t be able to do the same to the big ugly fat fellas.We know the military industrial complex is more interested in milking out profits than designing state of the art equipment, just look at their new failed fighter planes.
