#2 ...The -61s are probably out, as much as one might wish, but -86Cs are definitely in play.

Skid,

Not yet, no. But I would not be at all surprised if Miss Buffy did a LOT of no-notice takeoffs at odd hours to just keep the lads across the gulf guessing.

#5 For the uninitiated:

B-52H bombers carry six AGM-86B or AGM-86C missiles on each of two externally mounted pylons and eight internally on a rotary launcher, giving the B-52H a maximum capacity of 20 missiles per aircraft.

...the missiles' small size and low-altitude flight capability, which makes them difficult to detect on radar.
