Too bad they did not install the refueling boom like on Sentry units. If there is no USAF KC-135 or KC-10 to support them in their ops area they will probably not have their feet long enough (mainly to reach the South Atlantic sector).

B52 - As per usual with the UK Military it came down to cost and we're broke and can't afford to mod it :sad: We can't even afford to re-paint them either :grin:

Read somewhere the paint cheme was kept for heat disapation reasons... still how much could it have cost to apply a 707 based mod thats already been developed to a bird thats already plumed for IFR?
