B-52H Stratofortress and its payload

Share this on Facebook download .zip with all pictures

Well, many on this sub may disagree, but many things. The Super Hornet, for example, can carry Mavericks, and while its not a 30mm, the 20mm Vulcan is great for buzzing light enemy positions. Don’t get me wrong, the A-10 is amazing, and one of my favorite aircraft, but it’s fighting a mission that is currently, and probably never going to be needed. It was meant to kill tanks with a large gun and a ton of heavy anti tank missiles, not attack small groups of insurgents with expensive ammunition meant to go through heavy tank armor. The B-52 is different in the sense that there will always be a need for a big platform that can carry a large payload to carpet bomb or launch missiles from the safety from US airbases. But the need for a dedicated tank buster that was meant to take on large amounts of soviet (or any) tanks in really nonexistent. The Apache, for example, also has a 30mm gun, and can carry 16 Hellfire missiles and hover/linger really close to troops quite safely and effectively. The F-35 can carry ATGM, and so can drones. While the A-10 is unmatched in durability, payload, and lingering time, its mission can be fulfilled by both choppers and multi-role jets.
