The Martin B-26 Marauder was designed to meet the USAAC need for a high speed, medium bomber. In 1939, Martin received an order for 201 B-26s. What made this order so unusual was that the company was awarded an "off the drawing board" contract; there was no requirement for a prototype or preproduction sample. This aircraft was equipped with up to 11 machine guns and 4,000lbs of bombs.

Martin B-26B Marauder

Designed to meet a US Army Air Corps specification for a twin-engined medium bomber, the B-26 Marauder was first flown on November 25, 1940. Early in its service career, the B-26 was nicknamed "Widowmaker" because of its high accident statistics, especially during takeoffs and landings, when pilots were required to maintain a much higher than average speed to avoid stalling. Later model B-26Bs underwent a series of aerodynamics modifications, making the aircraft safer to fly. Used in the Pacific, Western European and Mediterranean Theaters, the B-26 eventually became the primary bomber on the Western Front, ending the war with fewer losses than any other USAAF bomber.
