B-1B weapons loaders conduct combat-capability training

Weapons load crews assigned to the 379th Expeditionary Aircraft Maintenance Squadron conduct a training exercise on a B-1B Lancer assigned to the 9th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron with inert munitions at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar, Sept. 13, 2018. The event involved reconfiguring the aircraft with inert munitions to maintain a high state of readiness. The B-1B Lancer carries the largest conventional payload of both guided and unguided weapons in the Air Force inventory and is the backbone of America's long-range bomber force. It can rapidly deliver massive quantities of precision and non-precision weapons against any adversary, anywhere in the world, at any time. Its armaments include up to 24 AGM-158A Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Munitions. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Ted Nichols/Released)
