US Air Force: B-1B bombers to replace B-52s in Guam

The US Air Force is scheduled to deploy B-1B nuclear-capable bombers to Guam on Saturday for the first time in 10 years. The deployment will replace B-52s in the territory in the northwest Pacific Ocean, according to the US Pacific Air Forces. B-1B Lancers carry the largest payload of both guided and unguided weapons of any American bombers. South Korean media quote US officials as saying the deployment of the new bombers is to deter nuclear and ballistic missile threats from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.
