Osprey's research of the A-26 Invader devices' participation in global warfare II (1939-1945). Designed to mix the bombing power of the B-26 Marauder with the flexibility of the ground-attack A-20 Havoc, the A-26 Invader could develop into the USAAF's assault bomber par excellence. able to flying low-level strafing or traditional bombing missions by means of easily altering the nostril configuration of the airplane, the Invader first observed motion in 1943 within the Pacific Theater attacking Japanese-held islands. Arriving in Europe a number of months later, the A-26 served with contrast for the rest of global conflict II. in reality, the layout proved such a success that it's going to move directly to fly strive against missions for one more 20 years. Written through army aviation specialist Jerry Scutts and illustrated with brand-new colour profiles and infrequent images, this is often the 1st publication to concentration solely at the A-26's missions in global battle II.
