The air force has test-n-drop an in-place upgrade, the multi-function of the B61-12 nuclear bomb, which is an improvement of the accuracy requirements, different attack options, and one of the least of the changes to the strategic landscape with regards to the nuclear weapons mission and capabilities.

“The releases have gone out, if we wanted to. We are very happy with the tail kit, it is the DoD’s part,” Gen. Timothy Ray, Commanding general of the air force Global Strike Command, and Commander, air forces, Strategic Air Command, told reporters at the Air Force Association,…

The B61-12, and adds a significant new level of precision to aim for, and to consolidate the different types of attack options in a single weapon. Instead of having to have separate versions of the tool for the different functions of the B61-12 will take into account the earth-piercing attacks, low-yield strikes, high-yield attacks, on top of the surface of detonation, and the bunker-buster options.

With the latest version of the B61 nuclear gravity bomb, of which the origin is way back in the mid-1960s, it is designed to be a medium to high yield strategic and tactical nuclear weapons, in accordance with that is also the coat of arms features a two-stage radiation implosion design.

“The main advantage of the B61-12 is that it packs in all of the gravity bomb’s capabilities against all of the attack scenarios in the home. It starts with a very low yield, a tactical “clean” with a layer of fall-out to be more of a mess of attacks against underground targets’, in Hans Kristensen, Director of the Nuclear Information Project, Federation of American Scientists, told the Warrior Base in an interview last year.


Air Force officials describe it, in part, by reference to the upgraded B61-12 as well as the have to have of an “All-Up-Round.”

The B61 Mod 12 is designed to be a “Tail Subassembly” to the a-bomb increased accuracy, resulting in a new level of precision, with the aid of inertial navigation systems, Kristensen said.

The B-2 has only the B61-7 (10-360 tons), B61-11(the 400 unit, the earth-penetrator), and the B83-1 high-yield, bunker-busters). The B61-12 will cover all of these tasks, and with less fall-out, plus a very low-yield attacks,” he added.

The evidence is that the B61-12 is able to penetrate beneath the surface, has important implications for the types of targets that can be held at risk by the a-bomb.

By bringing the world of “earth-penetrating” component of the B61-12 will significantly increase the target range or in the envelope of the attack. It’s more one-dimensional, or localized strikes on high value targets, ‘underground’, without anywhere near the same level of devastation on top of the ground, or over a wider area.

“A nuclear weapon that will detonate after it penetrated the earth more efficiently transmitting the explosive energy to the ground, so it is much more effective at destroying deeply buried targets, for a specific nuclear yield. An explosion above the ground, on the other hand, results in a higher fraction of the explosion energy is reflected back to the surface,” Kristensen explained.

The testing and integration of the B61-12 is part of a huge fleet of wide-spectrum, B-2 upgrade was designed to support the bombers in the next few years, a large number of its new B-21 And More are available to you. A range of technical amendments are also intended for the preparation of a 1980’s-era bombers to the most advanced, high-end modern security threats.


The B-2’s to get a better digital integration in your home town, the computer’s processing power is reported to be 1,000 times faster than existing systems as well as the next-generation of sensors was designed in order to help the aircraft to avoid enemy air defenses.

One of the effort on the part of the most important changes are designed to improve the bomber’s Defensive Management System, which is a technology that has been designed in order to help with the W-2 to recognize, and to avoid enemy anti-aircraft batteries, with the use of a variety of antennas, receivers and display units.

The Defensive Management System on the detection of signals or “signatures,” and the broadcast of the ground, anti-aircraft weapons, Air Force officials have said. With the current improvements in the technology will be described in detail by the Air Force and developers, as well as “the most far-reaching change, the effort, the B-2 have been tried.”

In the modern system, the so-called a-B-2 “DMS-M unit, consisting of the replacement of the legacy DMS subsystems so that the aircraft can be effective against the newest and deadliest enemy air defenses.

“The upgraded system will incorporate a suite of antennas, receivers, and displays that provide real-time intelligence information to the aircrew,” a department official told the “Warrior” Base.


The Upgrades to the existence of a better antenna, advanced digital electronic support measures, or Esm, in combination with the software components that have been designed to allow the integration of new technologies with the existing B-2 avionics, in accordance with the Operational Test and Evaluation report by the Office of the Secretary-general of the ministry of Defence.

The air force currently operates 20 B-2 bombers, with the majority of them are based at Whiteman AFB in Missouri. The B-2 from heights reaching more than 50,000 feet, and the transfer of 40,000 pounds of payload, including both conventional and nuclear weapons.
