Abstract : With the end of the cold war, the Air Force redefined the role of tts bomber force from one focused on nuclear war to one equipped to perform a variety of conventional missions. This redefinition is refiectod in the Bomber Roadmap, wbich was issued by the Air Force in June 1992. In response to a request from the former Chalan, House Committee on Armed Services, GAO reviewed the conventional capabilities currently available in the strategic bomber force and assessed the Air Force's plans, schedules, and costs, as outlined in the Bomber Roadmap, for equipping strategic bombers with conventional warfighting capabilities.
