The B-36 could hit targets thousands of miles away. -The B-29 and B-50 were replaced by B-47s while the B-36 replaced the B-52. The bombers' went supersonic with the B-58 Hustler. Finally, the ultimate expression of the strategic bomber was realized with the B-70 Valkyrie, a Mach 3 beauty with true intercontinental range. -The FB-111 replaced the B-58 while the new B-1 Lancer entered the fleet alongside the venerable B-52.

This is the history of the US strategic bomber.< Less
