The B-29 Superfortress was a four-engine heavy bomber developed by Boeing and operated by the USAAF (U.S Air Force after 1947) toward the end of World War II and during the 1950-1953 Korean War. On the cutting edge of technology at the time, the Superfortress had a pressurized crew compartment, computerized defensive weapons systems and advanced radar for bombing and navigation. The B-29 prototype was first flown on September 21, 1942, with the production model entering service in mid-1944. Although considered for operations in other theaters during World War II, the B-29 was used exclusively in the Pacific against Japan. The most well-known B-29s were the Silverplate series, which were modified to drop atomic bombs.Realistic panel lines
