Douglas B-23 Dragon

43.0k TatsuTheOtaku  2.1 years ago

Description

Douglas proposed a number of modifications designed to improve the performance of the B-18. Initially considered a redesign, the XB-22 featured 1,600 hp Wright R-2600-1 Twin Cyclone radial engines. The complete B-18 redesign was considered promising enough by the USAAC to alter the original contract to produce the last 38 B-18As ordered under Contract AC9977 as the B-23. The design incorporated a larger wingspan with a wing design very similar to that of the DC-3, a fully retractable undercarriage, and improved defensive armament. The B-23 was the first operational American bomber equipped with a glazed tail gun position.The tail gun was a .50 calibre (12.7 mm) machine gun, which was fired from the prone position by a gunner using a telescopic sight.

The first B-23 flew on July 27, 1939 with the production series of 38 B-23s manufactured between July 1939 and September 1940. ..................................Instructions..........................Vtol for flaps,Ag-1 and 2 for guns,and Ag-7 for landing lights

    @r1Username Hi there, I'm MajorSix, founder and owner of Major Industries. I doubt you've heard of us, since we're quite new and aren't very big. But anyway, what I came here to ask you if you are at all interested in joining us. Yes, I realize we are small, but as I say, all the greats have to start somewhere. If you have any questions, feel free to ask them, but I'm going to go ahead and answer some frequently asked questions. First off, we do give our employees a salary of one upvote per day. Second, you may also continue to make planes under you name with out any restrictions. And last, you can resign at anytime you want. I hope you consider my invitation, I hope to be hearing from you soon!

    All the best,
    MajorSix
