Not many aircraft with such destructive power will be held in such awe. The Rockwell B-1B Lancer, though, is a special aircraft. This supersonic heavy bomber has played a significant role in the US Air Force since it first too flight in 1974. While the B-1 first came to vision in the 1960s, it wasn’t until the early-to-mid 70s when it became a realistic aviation project.
It was to be used to improve over the speed of the B-58 Hustler whilst also replacing the old B-52 in terms of having even more space for firepower. This high speed and immense payload size made sure that the Lancer soon established itself as a major part of the USAF aviation firm. Indeed, as of 2018, it’s still held up as one of three heavy bombers used alongside the B-2 Spirit and B-52 Stratofortress.
Serving a key role in key war operations such as in Afghanistan, Iraq and in Kosovo, the Lancer has proven time and time again that it’s a military investment well worth making. That happy blend of destructive power and rapid speed can now be felt in super-close detail for anyone using the FSX: Steam Edition.
