The long range multi-role B-1 Lancer began as a replacement for the B-52 Stratofortress in the 1960s. It carries the largest payload of both guided and unguided weapons in the United States Air Force USAF inventory. The supersonic strategic bomber can rapidly deliver large quantities of precision and non-precision weapons against any adversary to any location at any time. The B-1B was first used in combat during Operation Desert Fox in Iraq in December 1998. In 1999 six aircraft were used in Operation Allied Force delivering more than 20 percent of the total ordnance while flying less than 2 percent of the combat sorties. This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen.
