As time goes on, the mission of the B-52 changes. It no longer performs one task as Strategic Bomber. The BUFF plays many newer roles, including many
in the Research and Development Arena.
The B-2 will most likely not be as fortunate as it has been made a premier dedicated platform with little space for improvement. As advanced as the
B-2 is, eventually, something will come out that is better than it and that will get replaced.
The C-130 has lasted as long because it's just as adapt at job-changes as the B-52, just look at the myriad ways you could apply a C-130.
