U.S. Central Command Bomber Task Force

A U.S. Air Force B-52H Stratofortress from Barksdale Air Force Base, La., prepares to be refueled by a U.S. Air Force KC-10 Extender assigned to the 908th Expeditionary Air Refueling Squadron, during a Bomber Task Force mission over the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility, Nov. 10, 2022. The bomber deployment showcases the U.S. military’s commitment to regional security and demonstrates the capabilities of a short-notice, rapid deployment of assets. The B-52 is a long-range, heavy bomber, capable of flying high subsonic speeds at altitudes up to 50,000 feet providing the U.S., coalition and partner forces with a global strike capability to deter conflict while credibly demonstrating the U.S.’s ability to address a global security environment.
