We have B-52s for this.

*ICBM's

It's amortization vs technology. 52s win everytime.

They sent four B1-B Lancers to Guam yesterday.

I'm pretty sure 6 are permanently stationed there.

B1-Bs were really just a project to keep Rockwell busy.

the cleanup will be really messy - but jeebus just get it over with already...

The B-52's there usually come from Barksdale AFB. There might be a few tankers there from Niagara Falls too. Thing is, against N. Korean artillery, the B1 would work out better at lower altitudes. The B-52's fly too high and too slow.

If it's the 36th Ops Group that's still there, no aircraft at all are permanently assigned, so who knows what's there.

They don't need to be fast. Haven't been for 60 years.

Those were built to bomb the Soviet Union though, Jim. N. Korea is all mountains.

It's about tonnage, shark. Tonnage.

The B-1's can fly supersonic at low altitudes under their radar, drop the bombs, and be back out before you know it.

What's the fun in that?

Or we could even send in a few B-2 Spirits. 80 bombs a piece and they'd show up as a small bird on N.Korea's radar.

Operating costs are too high, but yes.

In a few years the B-21 will replace the B-52 and B-1B anyway.

Nah, not until 2045

2030, they're saying. But yeah, after all the fuck-ups with the F-35, it'll be 2045 by the time it's combat ready. The next Kim will be in power by then.

There is a chance that some of the remaining H models could outlive me.....which is weird.

The newest B-52 is 50 years old., believe it or not. There's something like 58 active with another 18 in reserve.

There's a few more in storage, so I always call that number "grey".
1 week ago
I'm just going by USAF fact sheets. That number seemed high to me.

If we were to actually attack N.Korea, I doubt we'd send any bombers, honestly. If we did, it would only be to clean up whatever tactical nukes didn't kill. Also, B-1's don't deploy to guam, only B-52's do. B-1's are usually sent to Qatar. So if we did bomb N.K., it might actually be smaller aircraft like F16's with escorts.

Multiple small F16 groups can do a lot of damage and they are already in place all over the pacific and Europe.

Just going by what the Pentagon said to NBC http://www.nbcnews.com/news/north-korea/b-1-bombers-key-u-s-plan-strike-north-korean-n791221

Wow. I didn't know they actually deployed to Guam. Still, the front line would definitely be F16's, most likely from S.K and Japan. N.K. anti-air capabilities are actually pretty good. Glad I got out when I did. Ellsworth was my last base and all I can say is, FUCK bombers. Those jets are old as shit and the maintenance books are as thick as a cement blocks.

Really though, I would love it if this doesn't turn into something. Either way, a 'deployment' to Guam is light years better than being stuck in Qatar.

Another option is offshore guided missile launches from cruisers and SSGN subs, too. An Ohio-class sub can launch 154 Tomahawk cruise missiles without surfacing.

Like bombing worked for you lot in Vietnam

Different enemy, different weapons, different period in history.

but same old American bullshit

Same old angry limey bullshit from you, too. At least nothing's changed.
1 week ago
I mean, the British trained South Vietnamese troops during that conflict and SAS troops also served with American Spec Ops troops, but you wouldn't know anything about that.
1 week ago
seems like bullshit to me

Also, the US had support provided by MI6 station in Hanoi and British monitoring station in Hong Kong until the fall of Saigon in 1975.

That was all part of the British Advisory Mission to South Vietnam (BRIAM)
