B — The Hustler Survivors
The Convair B Hustler was the first operational jet bomber capable of Mach 2 flight. Later on, four additional external hardpoints were added to allow five weapons to be carried. Replacing the Boeing B Stratojet strategic bomber, it was originally intended to fly at high altitudes and supersonic speeds to avoid Soviet fighters. The B was notorious for its sonic boom , which was often heard by the public as it passed overhead in supersonic flight. The introduction of highly-accurate Soviet surface-to-air missiles forced the B into a low-level-penetration role that severely limited its range and strategic value, and it was never employed to deliver conventional bombs. This resulted in only a brief operational career between and when the B was succeeded by the smaller, swing-wing FBA.

Speed was the ability to deliver an H-bomb anywhere in the Soviet Union in just a few hours. Speed meant flying so fast that enemy defenses could not track you, and enemy fighters could not scramble in time to catch you. Finally, speed meant the ability to get off the ground ready to deliver a counter-strike in the event that the enemy launched a preemptive strike.
