B-20B

by   5,845 Mustang51  2 months ago

This fictional bomber is the main production variant of its predecessor, the B-20A. It was more efficient to create a new crew compartment instead of adding one of a B-29 to a different airframe. This version of the B-20 has had its tail elevator removed as it was apparent that enough lift came from the main wing with the new changes, thus its removal reduced drag. Initially, the defencive armament stayed the same as its predecessor but as the aircraft was carrying out more missions without an escort, as well as the threat of jets, it was decided to add extra turrets. All of the turrets could be operated by any of the defensive gunners in the aircraft as they were remote controlled. Overall, over 450 of these aircraft were built and were used for a couple years more than the original B-20s.

Instructions: to fly normally, turn the VTOL control all the way up. This will change the angle which the engines are at it order for a more stable flight. Afterwards, deactivate AG8 as this is what controls the engine pitch.
