Re: So many Mirandas/So few Constitution-refits?

IIRC, the B-1s and the B-52s have essentially the same mission - conventional bombing. The B-2s are tasked with the nuclear mission these days, but they've been mostly used for pinpoint conventional bombing in Iraq & Afghanistan. So we currently have three generations of vehicles designed over 30 or 40 years all doing basically the same thing.
