The men of the USAAF 312th BG had originally been trained on the P-40 but found themselves transitioning to the A-20 Havoc. The unit was called the “Roarin’ 20s”, because their goal was to roar across the Pacific and drive the Japanese back. Combat crews weren’t happy with the fire power on the A-20 so they began to modify the aircraft by getting rid of the bombardier position and replacing the glass nose with .50 caliber machine guns. Douglas began building aircraft with these modifications creating the A-20G.Crew figures

The Douglas A-20 Havoc was a light bomber and night fighter aircraft used by the United States and allied air forces during World War II. It was known as the Boston in Great Britain’s Royal Air Force and the Royal Australian Air Force and as the DB-7 in Soviet and French Air Forces. The night fighter variant was designated as P-70. The prototype was first flown in January 1939 with the first production aircraft flying on August 17, 1939. Although it was not the fastest or longest range aircraft in its class the A-20 Havoc distinguished itself as a tough and dependable combat aircraft. The A-20 was produced until September 1944 with 7478 built in several variants (7,098 by Douglas and 380 by Boeing), almost half of which was sent to the Soviet Union. The A-20 was retired by the U.S. Air Force in 1949.
