The role of medium-sized bomber turned out to be one of the most crucial during the Second World War and after a challenging introduction, the North American B-25 Mitchell developed into a very successful aircraft.
The B-25 was the most versatile aircraft of its kind and fulfilled a multitude of tactical roles in many different operational environments.
The Mitchell, an extremely robust and versatile aircraft, saw service as an anti-submarine patrol aircraft off the coast of Florida and as an attack bomber in the deserts of North Africa, successfully in both cases.
Some of the later versions became the most heavily armed aircraft of the war, with no fewer than 18 machine guns and a range of other offensive weapons.
With a solid nose with 8 heavy guns, these aircraft were deadly gunships, capable of destroying everything in their line of fire.
