As a kid I lived near an airforce base with F111's it was never explained to us kids just what that particular plane was designed to do.

Because it was on a need to know basis...and as a child you didn't need to know what that plane was designed to do.

The B61 has been deployed by a variety of U.S. military aircraft. Aircraft cleared for its use have included the FB-111A, B-1 Lancer, B-2 Spirit, B-52 Stratofortress; F-101 Voodoo, F-100 D & F Super Sabre, F-104 Starfighter, F/A-18 Hornet, F-111 Aardvark and F-4 Phantom II fighter bombers; A-4 Skyhawk, A-6 Intruder and A-7 Corsair II attack aircraft; the F-15 Eagle, F-15E Strike Eagle and F-16 Falcon; British, German and Italian Panavia Tornado IDS aircraft. USAFE and all NATO dual role aircraft can carry B61s. The Lockheed S-3 Viking was also able to deploy the B61 as a nuclear depth bomb.

The B61 cannot fit inside the F-22 Raptor's weapons bays and will instead be carried by the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II.[7]

As of 2005, they were deployed in Europe under the NATO nuclear sharing arrangement.[8] NATO has agreed to vastly improve the capabilities of this force with the increased accuracy of the B61 Mod 12 upgrade and the stealthy delivery of the F-35.[9][10] This will, for the first time, add a modest standoff capability to the B61.


Pretty close to every strike aircraft is nuclear capable. I fail to see your point..

Then be more specific and stop making ambiguous comments to try and support your position.

The DEFCON Warning System is a private enterprise which monitors world events and assesses nuclear threats against the United States by national entities. It is not affiliated with any government agency and does not represent the alert status of any military branch. The public should make their own evaluations and not rely on the DEFCON Warning System for any strategic planning. At all times, citizens are urged to learn what steps to take in the event of a nuclear attack.



Exactly people think there is just one as well. They are regional for example camps on Korea could be at defcon 4. And at the same time say ft Bragg could be at 2. There is no master level you can even have 1 branch different from another navy could be at 4 and airforce be at 2. Having been stationed a lot of places rediness levels change all the time though we really hated having leave cancelled.
