While I'm inclined to think that you may be right in this case I would appreciate that you explain more thoroughly what you mean by a "strait flush" radar.

Crusing at about 50,000 ft most guerilla forces can do little more then run and hide when one of these fly over .. Also thats when you bring out the old school B-52s. Look what the Afghan guerillas did when those flew over . they hide or they died.
I love the B-52 B.U.F.F it has been around long before I was born and it might very well be around long after im gone. Truly a masterpiece of aircraft design.

The USAF plans to keep the B52 going until 2050, at which point it will be 101 years old.

I've read the majority of his books, I am not impressed by him.
His dialogue is wooden and lacks depth, the characters are way too perfect and free of flaws.
As for the technology... He takes concepts that are quite obvious and expands on them.
Nothing impressive about him, he's like Clancy but with a wilder imagination.
