The study of the development of the US medium attack aircraft from the pre WWII models to their developments in jet powered light bombers.
These planes filled the gap between the fast incisive action of the fighter and the lumbering concentrated firepower of the heavy bombers.
Nonetheless the Heavy Bomber remains a military necessity and we study the development of the American Heavy bomber.
These planes were the big stick wielded by the US offensive forces, and became the tools
of choice in the brinkmanship of the cold war.
Today they're the platforms for launching military surgery and the embodiment of US airpower.
