WW2 U.S. Bomber Aircraft


Military History | Second World War

The American bomber arm excelled to new heights by the end of the war in 1945 - resulting in larger, pressurized designs carrying remote-operated guns and heavier bomb loads.

There are a total of [ 84 ] WW2 U.S. Bomber Aircraft entries in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below in alphanumeric order (1-to-Z). Flag images indicative of country of origin and not necessarily the primary operator. Light-, medium-, and heavy-class bombers are all included in this list as are developmental and proposed designs appearing during the war years (1939-1945).
