Speaking of 8A/A-17, howabout a civil derivative of the TB3D-2 similar to the unbuilt Douglas DT-202?

Douglas A-20, but the turret is a Martin turret, which is why I said "A-20 style", since they were used on other types, too.

Cheers,

Indeed they were, including the Avenger.  ;D




Very cool!  Where'd you find that photo?  Got any more...?

Cheers,

Logan

Douglas came in the second half of 1944 with a Decimator equipped with an Martin Turret, it was the TB3D-2C-version. here is one from VT-51 from USS San jacinto in 1944

Thanks Guys! Begin 1945 Douglas came with Decimator with a different turret, the TB3D-2D. It was very popular amongst the pilots of the Marines. here is one from VMTB-234

The naval pilots didn't like the TB3D-2D with the british turret, so there was also an standard TB3D-2D, used by the USN. here is one from VC-83

Cool. I love watching the variants evolve!

Since the Aéronavale got some, any chance of a Decimator in ML-KNIL markings?
