The Martin B-26 Marauder went through a rocky history before becoming the known stalwart of the United States Army Air Force that people know it to be. Designed by Peyton M. MacGruder, the B-26 was built on the concept of power, speed and minimal drag. As such, the aircraft's basic appearance was that of an in-flight torpedo tube with wings and engines. The Marauder worked to fulfill the need of the USAAF for a medium-weight, strike-capable bomber yielding high performance statistics.
The B-26 was generally armed with 12.7mm heavy machine guns in a top-aft dorsal turret, tail gun assembly, nose emplacement as well as a ventral gun position (in some models). 12.7mm machine guns could be substituted with the 7.7mm (or .303 caliber) if need be, as could the ventral machine gun replaced with two fuselage-fixed 12.7mm (.50 caliber) forward-facing machine guns (low and behind the cockpit). A single torpedo could be affixed to the underside of the fuselage (B-26A and onwards) and over 5,000lbs or bombs could be stored internally.
The B-26 would go on to see combat action against the Japanese in the little-remembered action on Alaska's Aleutian Islands chain.
