The B-36 is really worthy of a post of its own, but I’m just too lazy to write it right now. I tend to think of it in terms of Strategic Air Command and the nuclear bomber role. But design actually began in 1941, with the vision of a conventional bomber that would strike the heart of Germany from bases in the US. As such, it carried a massive bomb load. And for the first time, I’ve found video of it actually dropping conventional bombs. It’s clearly the forefather of the Arc Light.
