Airmen secure an ACM cruise missile to a B-52 Stratofortress pylon during an alert generation exercise at Minot Air Force Base, Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2006. The exercise tested cruise missile loading and aircrew response procedures. The ACM is a low-observable, air- launched, strategic nuclear missile with significant improvements over the ALCM-B in range, accuracy, and survivability. Armed with a W80 warhead, it is designed to evade air and ground-based defenses in order to strike heavily defended, hardened targets at any location within any potential enemy's territory. The ACM is designed for B-52H external carriage. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Jocelyn Rich)
