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,

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

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?

Hi Guys,

Been away for a month's holiday at Sri lanka, very nice, 35 degrees celsius all day but now back in Holland it is minus 10 degrees celsius. That's other stuff. So i am back again and on board with the request from the ML-KNIL.

The Dutch government ordered the Decimator end 1943 for the ML-KNIL squadrons fighting in the East and stationed in Australia. The first were delivered september 1944. ML-KNIL used the Decimator as fighter-bomber. here is one from 120 squadron fighting above Dutch New Guinea.
