Boeing B-52G SIOP airplane model. The B-52 BUFF [Big Ugly Fat Fellow] is the primary nuclear bomber in the USAF inventory. It provides the only Air Launch Cruise Missile carriage in the USAF. The B-52 also provides theater CINCs with a long-range strike capability. The bomber is capable of flying at high subsonic speeds at altitudes up to 50,000 feet (15,000 meters). It can carry nuclear or conventional ordnance with worldwide precision navigation capability.

With a gross weight of 488 000 pounds, the B-52 is even today one of the heaviest offensive military aircraft operated by any nation in the world.

Many other combinations of payload and range are, of course, possible. Range is, of course, greatly increased by in-flight refueling.

Best B-52G model I've seen

As a retired SAC guy, I've always had an affinity for the BUFF, and I think this model in the SAC SIOP color scheme is really outstanding! The antennae, the colors, the decals are all firstcrate. Great job!
