The Martin B-26 Marauder was designed to meet the US Army Air Corps need for a high speed, medium bomber. In 1939, Martin received an order for 201 B-26s. What made this order so unusual was that the company was awarded an "off the drawing board" contract; there was no requirement for a prototype or preproduction sample. This aircraft was equipped with up to 11 machine guns and 4,000lbs of bombs.
