American WWII's aircraft

WW2 tanks

Beechcraft A-38 Grizzly

The XA-38 was a powerful twin-engined attack aircraft. It had clean lines and powerful engines, impressive performance and excellent handling. A 75mm T15E1 cannon protruded from the nose. Two fixed machineguns were also in the nose, four more were in two remote-controlled turrets. But when the A-38 was ready there was little need for more attack aircraft, and the B-29 had priority for R-3350 engines. Only two XA-38s were built.
