“Makes a powerful bombing run along a line. To deploy your aircraft, tap any building and unit in the enemy's base. When they've finished their attack, they may be redeployed.”
The American-made B-52 Stratofortress is a long-range strategic bomber with a carrying capacity of 70,000 pounds, or 35 tons. Though it first came off the line in 1952, the United States Air Force estimates this adaptable aircraft will continue to serve until 2045. The B-52 was designed to carry nuclear weapons, and in 1961 an accident over North Carolina resulted in two warheads being dropped on the city of Goldsboro. When the Air Force recovered the bombs, they discovered that five out of six stages of the arming sequence had been completed.
