Here's How Many Weapons a B-52 Bomber Can Hold

The Air Force’s B-52 Bomber has been around since the 1950s and can hold up to 70,000 pounds of weapons. It’s a legendary beast that stretches 156 feet long, has a wingspan of 185 feet, and hits 40 feet tall. Known as the BUFF (that’s for Big Ugly Fat Fucker), it can hold nine weapons on each wing and 27 more inside the weapons bay. More devastatingly, it can also hold eight nukes inside.
