The B-52D was first deployed 1955 as a high altitude atomic bomber. As the conflict in South East Asia expanded the B-52D was adapted for use as a high altitude conventional bomber and deployed in Viet Nam. The bomb laden B-52D with the unique SE Asia camouflage scheme came to be recognized as a symbol of US military power used during the Viet Nam conflict.
