America is Testing the Next Generation of Bombers

Strategic bombers are set to be the assets of the select club of nuclear-armed superpowers for years to come.

Only three countries in the world maintain strategic bomber fleets. Rather predictably, they are the United States, Russia, and China. Since the end of the Cold War, only one new strategic bomber has been brought into service, and that is America’s stealthy B-2 Spirit. Only seven types of strategic bomber aircraft are in service today — three American, three Russian, and one Chinese. All three of these countries are also developing new strategic bombers.

Strategic bombers are medium to long-range penetration bomber aircraft that can drop large amounts of ordnance to destroy the enemy’s infrastructure and other strategic targets and neutralize its ability to wage war. Often Strategic bombers are also used to carry nuclear weapons in addition to conventional missiles and bombs.
