    Keep this on topic or else I will inform the mods. This is about military bomber planes. If this gets political, I will inform the mods. Thanks!
    Hey,

    What is your favourite jet or gas powered aircraft bomber?
    It can be anything as long as it has more than 2 engines.

    Mine is the B-52 Stratofortress bomber

    I cant see how this can get political.

    There's not many popular bombers other than the ones listed. (Searches)

    Why does it have to have more than two engines? What about the SBD Dauntless Torpedo Bomber?

    It can have how ever many engines you want.
    I'm sorry about the whole 2 engines thing. 2 engines or more looks cooler, in my opinion.
    Nice choices.

    What about the Avro Lancaster? Now there's a fine piece of bombing technology.


    Can we count an AC-130 gunship? It more shoots the ground than bombs it, but its still pretty cool.

    If the F-22 counts then me.

    But I have to go with what Toxicon mentioned. That B-58 Hustler is one of my favs.
