Joseph,

The B-70 Valkyrie is there as an hypothetical unit since it was never put into operational use. It gives players options for "what if" in scenarios since there were actually two constructed and built 1964-1969. A proposed B-53 bomber existed only on paper, conceived in 1945 and cancelled in 1949.

It indeed looks like the B53 9mT nuclear bomb could have been carried by B-53G/H aircraft. I've found at least one image of a B-52H dropping the bomb (inert test), so that capability may be added to a future DB3K update.

Thanks for the question.
