    Watch Them Fly

    "This is yet one more step in ensuring that we're prepared," USAF chief of staff Gen. David Goldfein said. "I look at it more as not planning for any specific event, but more toward the reality of the global situation we find ourselves in and how we ensure we're prepared to move forward."

    The general noticed that in the current situation in the world it is necessary to think about new ways of using nuclear weapons, both for deterrence and combat.
