B-2s Conduct Deployment To Indo-Asia-Pacific Region

Three Spirit Bombers Rotated To Guam

Three B-2 Spirits deployed from Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri, to Andersen AFB, Guam, in the U.S. Pacific Command area of operations Aug. 9.

U.S. Strategic Command bombers regularly rotate through the Indo-Asia-Pacific region to conduct PACOM-led air operations, providing leaders with deterrent options to maintain regional stability. During this short-term deployment, the B-2s will conduct local and regional training sorties, and will integrate capabilities with key regional partners, ensuring bomber crews maintain a high state of readiness and crew proficiency.

“Our strategic bomber force routinely operates around the globe and with our regional allies and partners, and this deployment is one such demonstration of the U.S. commitment to supporting global and regional security,” said Navy Adm. Cecil D. Haney, the STRATCOM commander. “Bomber training missions ensure crews maintain a high state of readiness and proficiency and demonstrate our ability to provide an always-ready global strike capability, whenever and wherever we are called to do so.”

STRATCOM routinely demonstrates its capability to command, control and conduct global bomber missions.

“Bomber aircraft provide the (PACOM) area of responsibility with an effective deterrent capability, ensuring the regional security and stability of the U.S. and our allies and partners,” said Air Force Gen. Terrence O’Shaughnessy, the Pacific Air Forces commander. “These bomber deployments visibly demonstrate our readiness and commitment to the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.”

One of nine Defense Department unified combatant commands, STRATCOM is charged with strategic deterrence; space operations; cyberspace operations; joint electronic warfare; global strike; missile defense; intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; combating weapons of mass destruction; and analysis and targeting.
