B-1B Lancer Units in Combat

Retail Price: $20.95

By: Thomas Withington

B-1B Lancer Units in Combat

The development of the B-1B Lancer Bomber was difficult to say the least. Originally conceived to fulfill a USAF requirement for an Advanced Manned Strategic Aircraft, the B-1, a concept aircraft was accused of being a white elephant, capable of performing nothing that could not be achieved at less financial and human expense by an intercontinental ballistic missile.
B-1B Lancer Units in Combat

Canceled by the Carter administration and finally commissioned by President Reagan as the modified B-1B, manufactured by Rockwell, the Lancer began its duties as a nuclear-armed bomber in the mid- 1980s.

The end of the Cold War intervened, and the jet was removed from its nuclear missions as a result of arms control legislation. However, the 1990s saw the metamorphosis of the Lancer into a potent conventional weapons carrier which has seen action in Iraq, the Balkans and Afghanistan.

In B-1B Lancer Units in Combat, book demonstrates that the Rockwell B-1B Lancer has proved its critics wrong in demonstrating its use as a highly flexible and hard-working bomber, able to undertake diverse missions ranging from CAS to the targeting of weapons-of-mass-destruction installations.

Published as part of the Osprey Combat Aircraft series.

B-1B Lancer Units in Combat book: 96 pgs w/index, softbound, 7.25 x 9.75, b&w and color photographs.
