American WWII's aircraft

WW2 tanks

Martin AM Mauler

The AM, originally designated BTM, was a large single-seat shipboard attack aircraft. There was also an electronic warfare version, the AM-1Q. The AM had been designed as a simpler alternative to the Curtiss BTC and Douglas BTD, and it was a better aircraft than these. Nevertheless it was overshadowed by the even simpler and lighter AD Skyraider. In addition, the tail structure was too weak.
