As a symbol of national air force strength, strategic bombers not only enhance the overall combat strength of the air force, but also play a role in the strategic deterrence of the show muscle.
Strategic bombers are large military aircraft that carry long-range projectiles from high altitudes to the ground, and their main purpose is to carry out long-range and strategic bombardments, carrying long-range, high-powered air-to-surface missiles, bombs or nuclear weapons, and to strike strategic objectives in the local heartland, the effect of significantly weakening local operational capabilities.

With a maximum take-off weight of 220 tons and an impressive payload and a maximum operational radius of 16,232 kilometers, the U.S. plans to keep it in service until 2050, thanks to its strength.
