Why America’s Enemies Still Fear the B-1B Bomber (Especially North Korea)



The United States has landed a Rockwell International B-1B Lancer strategic bomber on Osan Air Force Base in South Korea. The Pentagon intends for the temporary deployment to be a signal to North Korea that Washington stands ready to defend the Republic of Korea even as Pyongyang continues its nuclear sabre rattling.

“The bond between the United States and the Republic of Korea (ROK) is ironclad and the strength of that commitment will not be shaken by North Korea’s aggressive behavior,” said U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Thomas Bergeson, commander of the 7th Air Force. “What we are showing today is just one tool we have to choose from a wide array of options. The alliance grows stronger every day and we remain prepared to defend and to preserve the security of the Korean Peninsula and the region.”

    The B-1B can be a 'nuclear deterrent' by simply putting the weapons it was conceived to carry onboard. The USAF backed off the 'Nuke' option as an 'agreement' within SALT II limitations. This plane, while not 'stealth', has the radar profile no bigger than a red-tailed hawk, when seen head-on. Meanwhile, it carries a huge bomb payload, and can reach most anyplace on the globe, within a few hours of take-off. So, yes, anyone, everyone, should 'fear' it's reach and abilities.

    B1 can carrier 80k ton of weapon and thermonuclear weapons, that can easily devastate a country or part of a continent. It has electronic that no other nation has.

    This is one sleek looking aircraft!

  • KalKing03 says:

    b1 wasnt designed as a high altitude bomber, its swept wing and high speeds meant it would come in extremely fast below enemy radar and pop up to drop its bombs then "turn and burn" to burn out of enemy territory, janes has the best description……

  • mrwong11989 says:

    Just get Raptors to intercept the North Korean nuclear missiles while those bombers level their missile sites and also the reason the enemies fear the bomber is because those bombers might carry nuclear weapons themselves

  • kim snooks says:

    they fair the B1-b because it was made decades ago and the upgraded swans of Russia will finally catch up to them in 4 years (exept there not stealth)

  • Andreas Schmidt says:

    Die USA sind ein aufgeblasener Papier-Tiger, nur dazu bereit, Gegner anzugreifen, denen sie 10:1 überlegen ist.

    only third world country and non nuclear stafe such Vietnam would afraid of this out date weapon, NK, Russia and China are not afraid of this aircraft. HQ-9 or S-400 can bring this junk down from the sky less than 10 minutes. Dung Tran low life vietcong with short memory why you worship US like god when they killed overs millions of your people during Vietnam war.
