US to send nuclear-capable B-52 warplanes to bomb ISIS as military ups campaign to eradicate terrorists in Syria and Iraq  31DED78600000578-3477636-image-m-2_1457143309275
 
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 84 million bombers can also drop unguided bombs and were previously used in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

'We're going to keep the B-52 around. It provides some missions for us that are hard to replicate, primarily the range and payload the airplane provides,' Lieutenant General James 'Mike' Holmes said.

 

The B-52's payload is slightly smaller than that of the B-1 Lancers, which can fly at 900mph.

 

Lancers dropped 3,800 munitions on 3,700 ISIS targets in six months. They were only used in three per cent of missions but dropped 40 per cent of weapons used against ISIS.

Well that is one of the more polite interpretations of BUFF .... most military types know a slightly cruder meaning.... FYI the first BUFF flew in 1954, 62 years ago, the last one rolled off the assembly line in 1962, making the newest plane 50 years old. With the latest upgrades it is expected that they will be operational to about 2050. Why? Because it does what it does better than any plane in inventory today.
