The bomber, is the only aircraft that can carry large air-to-surface standoff weapons in a stealth configuration, including the 30,000 pound Massive Ordnance Penetrator.

Flying directly from Whiteman AFB, B-2 bombers flew an extended deterrence mission over Korea last month. Two such planes are also believed to be deployed at Guam, in the Pacific.
