South Korea war
SO WHAT: The Boeing B-52 Stratofortress, a US strategic bomber, has been in service since 1955. The aircraft is capable of delivering conventional or nuclear weapons to targets.
The Sun reports:
DONALD Trump is reportedly planning to send nuclear bombers to the Korean peninsula as tensions in the region reach breaking point.
North Korea and the US have been teetering on the brink of war for months after Kim Jong-un carried out a series of controversial missile launches.
Earlier this week, trigger-happy Kim pushed his luck once more when he fired off four ballistic missiles into the seas near Japan.
Now US military chiefs are reportedly planning to fly in B-1 and B-52 bombers – built to carry nuclear bombs – to show America has had enough, according to the Korea Times.
