The CONECT Platform is so new it has no real History, entered service in late 2014, early 2015 and is still being updated: B-52s are periodically refurbished at USAF maintenance depots such as Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma. The Buff is expected to remain in service at least until 2045, nearly 90 years after the first B-52 entered service. The USAF continues to rely on the B-52 because it remains an effective and economical heavy bomber, particularly in the type of missions that have been conducted since the end of the Cold War against nations that have limited air defense capabilities. This is a FSX/P3D only conversion and will not work with FS2004. Original Model created by AlphaSim Ltd for FS2004. FSX updated to the CONECT series B-52H by David Robles.
