How about a Prowler-like EB-51 for the first Gulf War?

Or an equivalent to the Canberra T.17A with its lumps and bumps:

Any of the B-57 users might prove to be a good B-51 operator.  I for one plan to do a PAF B-51.

I was thinking of a B-51E to fly in place of F-105s in the Vietnam War. J57s to replace the J47s and two Vulcan 30x113mm in the cheeks and a radar in the nose. With night attack capability similar to the A-6 lots of bombs and an awesome strafer. Flying NOE to avoid the MiGs and SAMs. With green-green-black wrap around schemes you could call them the Martin B-51E "Black Panther".

Rebooting this thread.

I have surplus J57s from my AMT EC-135N. So swap out the pods engines and leave the tail J47.

3x J47 = 15,600 lbs thrust
2x J57 + 1x J47 = 28,600 lbs thrust

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

I wonder what a B-51 equivalent to the WB-57F would look like?

After Martin XB-51 lost Light Tactical Bomber fly-off competition to Canberra, Martin selected to build the Canberra (designated B-57) under license. During early 1951 Martin Company offered new blended design that incorporated top features of British Canberra and its XB-51.
