The B-36 "Peacemaker" was a strategic bomber built by Convair and operated solely by the United States Air Force from 1949 to 1959. The B-36 was the largest mass-produced piston engine aircraft ever made. It had the longest wingspan of any combat aircraft ever built, although there have been larger military transports. The B-36 has a range greater than 6,000 miles and a maximum payload of 73,000 lb, which made it the world's first manned bomber with an unrefueled intercontinental range. It set the standard for subsequent US intercontinental bombers. The B-36 was the primary nuclear weapons delivery vehicle of the Strategic Air Command, until replaced by the the jet powered Boeing B-52 Stratofortress.
