The B-52 was built to carry nuclear weapons for Cold War-era deterrence missions, it can carry up to 70,000 pounds of weapon. The B-52 replaced the Convair B-36. Superior performance at high subsonic speeds and relatively low operating costs have kept the B-52 in service despite the advent of later aircraft. In 2005, the B-52 marked its 50th anniversary of continuous service with its original operator and after being upgraded between 2013 and 2015 it will serve into the 2040s.This handcrafted model is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail and makes a great gift for any veteran, aviation enthusiast or history buff. 。 From the Manufacturer The B-52 Stratofortress is a long-range, jet strategic bomber that replaced the Convair B-36 and the Boeing B-47. Built by Boeing Aircraft CB-52G Stratofortressorporation in Wichita, Kansas, it has been operated by the United States Air Force (USAF) since 1955. Rarely called by its official name Stratofortress, it is more commonly referred to as BUFF (Big Ugly Fat Fellow). On November 23, 1945, Air Materiel Command, a former USAF command, issued desired performance characteristics for a new strategic bomber. Boeing, Consolidated Aircraft and Glenn L. Martin Company all submitted proposals, with Boeing winning the design competition. The primary nuclear-roled bomber in the USAF inventory, the B-52 was designed to reduce the overall aircraft weight in an effort to improve performance and has the longest unrefueled range of any bomber. It can carry up to 60,000 pounds of nuclear or conventional ordnance and can fly at high subsonic speeds and altitudes with worldwide precision navigation capability. The first B-52G aircraft rolled out of the production plant in the summer of 1958. The “G” model was heavier than earlier variants and had increased unrefueled range. Other changes included an enlarged nose radome, a reduced vertical fin size, a modified tail cone and removed ailerons. 。 。 。
