B-25 hard nose was the best plane of WW2. 12 pilot controlled 50cal's facing front with electric solenoid recharge/recock to clear jams and plenty of parachute-frag bombs making low level runs ruined japans forces. The arm air corps low level bombers sunk more tonnage of japans ships than the navy. Navy had some big battles but the army air corps was out there every day all those years hunting and sinking anything in range. The pacific B-25's had the tail gunner deleted using painted black wood to look like 5 cals. They would stay on the deck with the top turret handling the rear defense. They lost less men deleting the twin 50's in the tail since that's where the majority of bullets hit. After changing to electric solenoid recharging guns the planes were much more effective making passes on airfield and shipping. Tree parts and ships wire antennas were commonly hanging off of the planes after landing.
