The Air Force has long discussed the idea of using transport planes as bombers to fill the role of the current B-52, which has long range, but has no stealth features and is a huge sitting duck in a dog fight.

In the planned bomber configuration, it might carry drones that could drop bombs in the target area for as much as twenty-four hours.
