During World War II, the B-26 (formerly A-26) was developed by the Douglas Aircraft Company to fill the need for a modern attack plane. It was named the Invader and was the fastest attack bomber of its day. Combining speed, heavy fire-power and bomb capacity, it served well as a straight bomber, nightfighter, skip bomber or as a strafing and attack plane. This model of the B-26 carried eighteen .50 cal. machine guns and 6 rockets in addition to the regular bomb load within the fuselage. The gun turrets in the fuselage were remotely controlled and were aimed by a gunner using a periscope-like sighting mechanism. The B-26 had a wingspan of 70 feet and was 50 feet 9 inches long. Cruising speed was in the 300 mph class. Power was supplied by two 18 cylinder, double-row Pratt and Whitney radial engines. Normal crew consisted of 3 men.
