B 25 J MITCHELL 1/72

With a total output of almost 11,000 aircraft the B-25 became the American medium bomber of World War II. Built in response to a USAAF proposal for a medium bomber, the first prototype was already flying in January 1939. The outbreak of the Second World War in Europe accelerated the development of the B-25. The B-25B gained fame due to a bombing raid on Tokyo. On 18th April 1942 16 B-25Bs were launched from the aircraft carrier USS Hornet to carry out the Doolittle Raids on Tokyo. The successor to the B-25 D, the B-25J Mitchell III was the last production version and with a total build of 4,319, it was also the most prolific variant of the Mitchell. The role of the B-25 was changing at the same time as the aircraft in the Pacific were increasingly required to attack bomber targets. The medium bomber developed into a ground attack aircraft with a newly developed solid nose armed with 8 MGs. Together with its defensive weapons stations it had a total armament of 18 MGs. The concentrated firepower of these cannon versions gave rise to the name Strafer .
