B-1A SAC Bomber: MinicraftSale!
B-1A, SAC Bomber, Test Camo, Prototype: 1:144 scale
The B-1A Strategic Air Command aircraft was designed to replace the aging B-52 Stratofortress as a supersonic heavy bomber capable of delivering a nuclear payload. However, after a lengthy development program, the B-1A was never deployed and cancelled in 1977 due to rising costs and increased vulnerability to improving Soviet defensive systems. The B-1A continued to serve long after the program was cancelled and served as a test bed for the new B-1B. The B-1B while physically similar to the B-1A it was not capable of supersonic flight although it offered significant improvements in payload and avionics over the B-1A. This plastic assembly kit includes 2 marking options, the USAF prototype and a Strategic Air Command B-1B test program markings.
