What is your favourite (not necessarily best) World War Two Light/Medium Bomber and why? Let us stick to twin engine designs to make a distinction between heavy loaded fighters and larger four engine bombers (which we will get to soon).
Again a hard choice, although not as hard as the fighter selection. In the previous thread I mentioned the De Haviland Mosqito and this gets an honourable mention but I have always liked the look of the Martin B-26 Marauder. It had a terrible initial record with a high number of accidents but ended up being a very successful aircraft serving across multiple theatres. It had the standard medium bomber payload of 4,000 lbs and a decent number of fixed forward firing machine guns as well as a dorsal turret and forward and rear tail guns. Interestingly the aircraft did quite well shooting down German and Italian transports in the Mediterranean Theatre.
A notable aircraft was Mild and Bitter,,
"It was the first Allied bomber in the European Theater of Operations to complete 100 operational missions. This was accomplished by Mild and Bitter on an afternoon raid on a Nazi airfield at Evreux/Fauville, southwest of Rouen, France, on 9 May 1944. She was a B-26B-25, Serial Number 41-31819, of the 450th Squadron in the 322nd Bomb Group (M) of the 9th Air Force and had flown her first mission on 23 July 1943. She did all this on her original engines, amassing a total of 449 hours and 30 minutes on them, 310 hours and 40 minutes of that in combat! During this time she never aborted due to mechanical failure, and not one of her many crewmen was a casualty. She was taken off operations after her 100th mission and flown back to the States to conduct War Bond selling tours."
