Strategic Bombers are unstoppable

Can't believe England and France got rid of theirs because holy shit there's really no defense of stopping them in the air (yeah I know about vietnam, the one in Iraq and the one lost in a Russian airbase but I mean post cold war)
I fricking love these guys

    aside from stealth ones they're all useless for anything other than launching cruise missiles from way behind the frontline
    they're not survivable against AA missiles and they're easily detected with their giant radar crosssection

      You can launch thousands of drones On an air. Drones can't go fast or stay up long. Drop thousands of drones out refuel repeat.

    Okay, they are impressive. Absolutely. But what do you actually do with them? Upkeep can't be cheap, modernizing them isn't either. But then, what do they do? It's not like we're still fighting proper nation vs. nation wars. Especially not with air capable nations. And those air capable nations that do, once in a blue fricking moon, decide to get into some fighting with each other don't really go on massive air raids and bombing runs on major cities. Isn't the vast majority of bombing done by jets, if not drones, anyway?

      You use em to launch hundreds of missiles at once. Easy way to open a conflict really
      Yah well never see a world war but say the United states wanted to invade Venezuela. You'd need hundreds of missiles in one go

          B-1 maybe but have you even read about what the B-2 has done? Or just how much ordnance the B-52 can carry?

            B-52
            >12 JASSM (20 if the bomb bay is upgraded)

            Rapid Dragon
            C-130
            >12 JASSM
            C-17
            >45 JASSM

            So a single C-130 carries as much JASSM as a vanilla B-52, and a C-17 mogs two upgraded B-52s

              Yes, and a B-52 is a B-52. Are you moronic or being intentionally obtuse?

        I'm talking about proper fricking drones, not toys you can buy off Amazon and drop grenades or mortar shells with. Of course drones can drop bombs.

      Because Russia can't make engines that do anything besides go fast for 10 seconds of burn time before exploding

      Also isn't it supposed to be the Soviet version of a B1

    • 4 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Soviet Union material science started getting mogged by western Metallurgy toward the end of the Cold War, so their airframes ended up heavier. Their engines also tended to be less fuel efficient for equivalent T/W ratio, which exacerbates the weight issue by requiring a buttload more internal fuel . The tu160 weighs like 2x what a B1b does fueled but unarmed

    Why won't thirdies like Ukraine and Turkey built their own bombers by converting cargo aircraft like A-400 or An-124 into bombers? What is the technical requirement for making these bombers that separates them from large frame aircraft?

    Bomb trucks, only good for killing sand people who don't have IADS.
    For everyone else, it's a cruise missile slinger.
