The B-52 Stratofortress may not be American’s sexiest plane, but it is a fucking workhorse. It’s like, if the B-2 bomber is Stephen Strasburg, throwing gas, the B-52 is Livan Hernandez, just quietly doing its job for decades. Plus, it’s been around just as long as Livo. Longer, even.

It’s trusty, reliable, and it can load the fuck up on bombs. Here, in a video from the Smithsonian, you can see every single thing it can carry on just one mission. Missiles. Mines. Laser-guided bombs. Eight nukes. Eight nukes.

Maybe my earlier comparison wasn’t exactly accurate. Because eight nukes is some gas.

Now, with more collateral damage! Precision bomb+unknown target+moral ineptitude+performance reporting=war crimes.
