The B-52 Stratofortress is the most famous long-range jet-powered strategic bomber in the aviation history. Produced by the American company Boeing since 1955 it has been, for a long time, a symbol of the Cold War. It has been, for several years, the backbone of the United States Air Force Strategic Air Command. The B-52 has been produced in a significant number of versions that has gradually evolved the successful project to better answer to the changing in operational needs. The “G” version is the most produced B-52 variant, and it has been delivered to the S.A.C. wings from the early 60s. It could be armed with the North American AGM-28 Hound Dog stand-off air-to-surface nuclear missile that was part of the US nuclear arsenal until the mid-1970s. It was developed in the middle of the "Cold War" to carry out nuclear attacks on high priority land targets such as air and missile bases
