The Boeing B-52 Stratofortress is a long-range, jet strategic bomber flown by the United States Air Force (USAF) since 1954.
The B-52 replaced the Convair B-36 and the Boeing B-47. Although built for the role of Cold War-era nuclear deterrence, its conventional capabilities now take priority. The aircraft has the longest range of any bomber and carries a heavy strategic or tactical weapons load.
Its economy in operation and high subsonic performance compared to the rest of the USAF strategic bomber fleet has enabled it to continue to serve rather than be replaced by the Mach 3 XB-70 Valkyrie, supersonic B-1B Lancer, and stealth B-2 Spirit. In January 2005, it was the second aircraft, after the English Electric Canberra, to mark 50 years of continuous service with its original primary customer.
The USAF`s Strategic Air Command had B-52 Stratofortresses in active service from 1955 through 1991, when the aircraft were assigned to the Air Combat Command.
Thirty-one B-52s were lost in Vietnam. Of these, 18 were shot down by ground fire or damaged beyond repair, including surface-to-air missiles. Two B-52Fs were lost in a mid-air collision during the first Arc Light mission. Seven B-52Gs were lost during Linebacker II, six to SAMs and one to structural failure. B-52D tail gunners were credited with shooting down two MiG-21 `Fishbeds`; one on December 18, 1972, by SSgt Samuel O. Turner, and one on December 24, 1972, by A1C Albert E. Moore. Turner was awarded a Silver Star for his actions.
The model is rigged for animation, and the product features four highly detailed and textured resolutions of the model.
This model is a 3DMax model, saved in version 8 as a MAX file, and requires 3DMax. It does not include any other formats to allow it to be opened in any other software. The model is rigged where appropriate, and mapped and textured.
