Submarine Matters: Guam nuclear submarine and air base
Nice summary of the second line pivot in 2015.
Here's Tinian in 1945 stacked with B29s.
No one, I mean no one, would have believed that a nation that could pour B29s off of a Ford system would only get its hands on less than 2 dozen B2s 4 bomber generations later.
Mind you no one in UKplc in 1906 would have believed that by 1920 UKplc would be out of the dreadnought business. Just like the worlds top military airframe maker nation in 1918 would be struggling to keep concrete dead weight out of its combat airframes today.
What a joke nation.
In fact USAAF is now in the UK's position of 1955.
Endless studies of what needs to be built to disguise the fact that nothing will be built until a new generation of decision makers turn up to bite the painful truth pill.
Do not, I repeat, do not expect a B3.
Do expect a corporate Death Star overhead 24/7 though.
That Bomber B stench.....
