The Eurasian:
Record Breaking Warplane! US Is ‘Upgrading’ Its Nuclear Bombers To Keep Them Flying For Next 30 Years

ByTanmay Kadam
October 21, 2022Boeing released a video accompanied by an announcement that the B-52 Commercial Engine Replacement Program (CERP) has completed wind tunnel testing using a model of the B-52 Stratofortress.

The CERP is a part of the Pentagon’s $11.8 billion upgrade program for its fleet of B-52 strategic bombers to keep them flying into the 2050s and probably beyond to deter the US’ near-peer adversaries such as China and Russia.

The legendary B-52 Stratofortress nuclear heavy bomber has been a bastion of the US Air Force (USAF’s) bomber fleet since it was first introduced in the 1950s during the height of the Cold War. Seventy-six B-52Hs are still in service, with another 12 in reserve storage.

Of late, the nearly 70-year-old bomber has begun to show signs of aging, but the USAF remains determined to continue to fly the B-52s for decades to come, and as part of that, the aircraft has been going through continuing reforms to stay viable.

Commercial Engine Replacement Program
The B-52’s current Pratt and Whitney-made TF33 turbofan engines need an overhaul after every 6,000 flight hours, which according to an estimate in 2016, the USAF must spend $2 million per engine.

In September 2021, Rolls-Royce North America was selected to supply the replacement jet engines for the Cold War-era B-52 bomber. The USAF decided after Rolls Royce’s F130 beat GE Aviation’s CF34-10 and Pratt & Whitney

The B52 still is going strong. It seems 1950's bombers are difficult to get rid of as the Russian are updating (if they can get the chips ) their Tu-95 Bear.

Thanks for the complement. The serpent shot is one of my favorites of the B52. Just saw it there w the Viet Nam era camouflage and had to take it

The one thing that shocked me about the article was there are still 76 B52's flying around the world and another 12 parked, ready to fly. I thought more like 30 or 40

Yes your right something about that era bombers, although the B36 & B58 disappeared relatively quick (both Convair designs). One still hears of the Russian bomber violating some nations air space. It's my understanding its counter rotating props makes the noise level inside almost "un Bear able"

Not US Army as the tail has text "MARINES", also I immediatly recognized the shape that belongs to AH-1 series and US Army no longer use these, but US Marines still have AH-1Z Vipers.
