What is B-52 bomber?

The Boeing B-52 Stratofortress is a long-range, subsonic, jet powered strategic bomber designed and manufactured by Boeing. It is operated by the United States Air Force since the 1950s. Recently, these bombers flew over the Middle East as part of the “presence patrol” mission. This comes soon after two Iranian ballistic missiles reportedly landed within 100 miles of a US aircraft carrier strike group in the northern Indian Ocean.
