B-1B

Picture of B-1B

The Rockwell B-1B Lancer is an American multi-role, long-range bomber, designed as a replacement for the B-52 and capable of flying inter-Continental missions without refuelling, then penetrating present and predicted sophisticated enemy defences. It can perform a variety of missions, including that of a conventional weapons carrier for theatre operations. It has a speed over 900 mph and a ceiling of 9000 metres. It carries a crew of four (aircraft commander, pilot, offensive systems officer and defensive systems officer). The B-1B carries armament of up to 84 Mark 82 conventional 500-pound bombs and 30 CBU-87/89/97. It can also be reconfigured to carry a wide range of nuclear weapons.

B-2

Picture of B-2

The Northrop B-2 (Spirit) is an American multi-role stealth bomber capable of delivering both conventional and nuclear munitions. Along with the B-52 and B-1B, the B-2 provides the penetrating flexibility and effectiveness inherent in manned bombers. Its low-observable, or 'stealth,' characteristics give it the unique ability to penetrate an enemy's most sophisticated defences and threaten its most-valued, and heavily defended, targets. The B-2 has a crew of two pilots, an aircraft commander in the left seat and mission commander in the right, compared to the B-1B's crew of four and the B-52's crew of five. The B-2 is powered by four General Electric F-118-GE-100 engines.
The B-2 carries all its weapons internally and is fitted with two separate weapons bays in the central section of the aircraft body. The B-2 has the capacity to carry up to 40,000 lb of weapons, including conventional and nuclear weapons, precision guided munitions, gravity bombs and a range of maritime weapons. Each weapons bay is equipped with a rotary launcher and two bomb rack assemblies capable of carrying the B-61 and B-83 nuclear and Mk 84 conventional bombs from the rotary rocket launcher, and Mk-82 and CBU-87 conventional weapons from the bomb rack assemblies. The B-2 can also carry the AGM-129 Advanced Cruise Missile. The aircraft is fitted with a GATS/GAM weapon system which consists of a GPS-Aided Targeting System (GATS), used with the GPS-Aided Munition (GAM), developed by Northrop Grumman and Raytheon. Sixteen satellite-guided JDAM missiles can be carried. The aircraft is also intended to be fitted with the JSOW (Joint Standoff Weapon) and Joint Air to Surface Standoff Missiles (JASSM) when these enter service.

B-52 STRATOFORTRESS

Picture of B-52_Stratofortress

The Boeing B-52 is the US Air Force long range, large payload multi-role bomber and is known as the Stratofortress or the Buff (Big Ugly Fat Fellow). It is the USAF's principal strategic nuclear and conventional weapon platform, and also supports the US Navy in anti-surface and submarine warfare missions. It is the longest serving combat aircraft in the world - 104 B-52H's were built and the last was delivered in 1962. The B-52, with a weapons payload of more than 70,000 pounds, is capable of carrying the most diverse range of weapons of any combat aircraft. The nuclear weapons capacity includes 12 AGM-129 Advanced Cruise Missiles (ACMS), 20 AGM-86A Air Launched Cruise Missiles (ALCM) and eight bombs. The conventional weapons carriage capability is eight AGM-84 Harpoon missiles, four AGM-142 Raptor missiles, 51 x 500 lb bombs, 30 x 1000 lb bombs, 20 AGM-86C Conventional Air Launched Cruise Missiles (CALCM), twelve Joint Stand Off Weapons (JSOW), twelve Joint Direct Attack Munitions (JDAM) and sixteen Wind Corrected Munitions Dispenser (WCMD). The B-52 can also deliver 51 500lb, 30 1000lb and 20 2000lb navy mines. The B-52H is powered by eight Pratt and Whitney type TF33-P-3 turbofan engines each providing more than 17,000 pounds of thrust. The engines are mounted in pairs on sharply raked forward pods under the 185 feet wing. The aircraft has ten internal plus two external fuel tanks with a capacity of over 181,000 litres, which gives a non-refuelled range of more than 8,600 miles. The operational range with one air refuelling is 7,500 nautical miles.

The Bell P-39 Airacobra was an American single-seat fighter aircraft of the Second World War designed around a 37 mm T-9 cannon which, in order to maximize the airplane's forward firepower, was fitted to fire through the propeller hub. In order for the cannon to fit inside the nose, the engine was placed behind the cockpit, and drove the propeller via a long shaft which passed under the pilot's feet. The centre-of-gravity shift caused by the engine's location resulted in the need for a tricycle landing gear arrangement, the first of it's kind among Second World War fighters.
