United States Strategic Air Command High-Altitude Boeing B-52 Stratofortress Long-Range Heavy Bomber
[laptop-built, view on narrow browser window]
Powered by 8 Pratt & Whitney jet engines, the Boeing B-52 Stratofortress
was USA's most convincing atomic airborne forward-based weapons-platform.

If it wasn't for the US Strategic Air Command, it's likely all Europe/Britain would have been overrun by the Soviet Steamroller. The crucial role of the U.S. Air Force's Strategic Air Command and the immense global power and reach of B-52 Stratofortress 24/7 patrols in successfully deterring the Soviet Union from starting major war cannot be overstated.
