"I never thought such a large plane could be so useless. What a piece of crap."
Estovakian pilot[1]

The B-52H Stratofortress is a large strategic bomber which has appeared in numerous Ace Combat titles. First appearing in Air Combat, the B-52 became a staple aircraft throughout its many appearances.

The B-52 was the primary bomber craft of a large number of nations. Belka used these in the opening stages of the Belkan War alongside their domesticly designed BM-335 Lindwurm.

During the Skully Islands insurrection, rebel forces utilized the bomber on occasion. The Usean Rebel Forces acquired several during their uprising and attempted to use them to destroy the headquarters of the Usean Allied Forces.

During the 2006 Free Erusea uprising, several B-52s were stolen by Free Erusea; all were shot down by Mobius 1.

During the Circum-Pacific War, both Osea and Yuktobania used the B-52, both sides simultaneously deploying theirs during combat in the Jilachi Desert.

In 2014, B-52s of the IUN-PKF's Gray Moth Squadron came under attack from Free Erusean aircraft and were forced make emergency landings at a Peacekeeping Force base in Scofields Plateau.[2]

In 2015, the Estovakian Air Force used multiple B-52s during the Invasion of Gracemeria[3] and the subsequent attempts to eliminate the Emmerian military on Khesed Island.[4] Notable users among the Emmerian Air Force included the Hammerhead and Stork bomber units, who played key roles in battles at San Loma[5] and the Moloch Desert.[1] During the assault on the Chandelier, Emmeria deployed multiple B-52s as reinforcements.[6]

During the Lighthouse War in 2019, the Erusean Air Force had multiple B-52s stationed at its airbase in Cape Rainy; all the B-52s were destroyed by Strider Squadron during Operation Werewolf.[7] During the war, Erusea sparingly used the aircraft and instead utilized Tu-95s and Tu-160s for the majority of its air raids.[8][9]

Trivia

  • The B-52H Statofortress is lacking tail cannons, but apparently the ones in Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation regained their tail cannons in difficulties of Hard and above. However, they rarely hit if the player keeps doing lateral/frontal, high speed passes on it.
