B5N2

Before the advent of the B5N, Japan used the B2M and B4Y as torpedo biplanes. However, the significant limitations of biplanes were obvious, so in 1935, inspired by the monoplane A5M fighter, the Imperial Japanese Navy developed the 10-Shi torpedo bomber specification.

Do-217E-4

Dornier Do 217 E-4 medium twin-engine bomber.

Late 1941 saw the start of production of Do 217 E-4 variant bombers, which differed from the E-2 mainly in their new BMW 801C engines, with a takeoff power of 1,560 hp, and in their wings' reinforced leading edge, which could cut through the cables of barrage balloons.

Do-217J-2

When production models of a properly functioning FuG 202 Lichtenstein B/C airborne radar appeared, Do 217 J-2 variant night fighters began to be constructed.
Planes of the J-2 variant differed from the J-1 in their lack of a rear bomb bay, which had finally been removed, and in the characteristic "whiskers" of their radar antennas which had appeared in the nose section.

Do-217K-1

In the late summer of 1942, full-scale production of a new bomber variant, called the Do 217 K-1, was started. Its creation was prompted by the designers' wish to improve visibility from the pilot's station. Whereas the Do 217E had a projection in front of the windscreen of the pilot's cockpit, a new streamlined forward section of the crew cockpit was developed for the Do 217K; it had no projection and was shared by the pilot and the navigator. The crew cockpit became more spacious, and visibility was improved.

The creation of the next version of the Do 217 bomber was caused by a shortage of BMW 801 air-cooled engines. These engines were urgently needed for Fw 190A fighters and Ju 88G heavy night fighters

The Heinkel He.111 was a German monoplane medium bomber (also torpedo bomber and attack bomber). The Hе.111 H-3 entered production in November 1939 and could also be used in a naval bomber role. However its defensive armament was not particularly effective, with limited defensive arcs and a very low rate of fire of only 540 rounds per minute.

Ki-49-I

Twin-engine monoplane medium bomber with retractable landing gear and tail wheel. The development of a new medium bomber (heavy bomber, by Japanese standards) for the Japanese Army Air Force began in the spring of 1938. The new airplane was to replace the Mitsubishi Ki-21 bomber.

Ki-49-IIA

In the spring of 1942, it was decided that the Ki-49 should be fitted with new engines, the Nakajima Ha-109 radial piston engines, rated at 1450 hp. This required only a slight modification of the engine nacelles, as the new engine was a similar size to that of its predecessor. However, the oil cooler could not fit inside the nacelle along with the engine and was put outside, instead. Other changes were made to improve combat conditions: the armor protecting the airplane's crew was upgraded and self-sealing fuel tanks were installed, as well as a new bomb sight.

Pe-2 (205-358 series)

By the summer of 1943, due to growing production volume and a general decrease in quality, the basic performance characteristics of production bombers had degraded to an intolerable level. The Factory No. 22 designers were tasked with drastically improving the quality of the bombers produced. The new chief designer, V. M. Myasishchev, was in charge of this work.

Pe-2 (21-82 series)

Since the Pe-2's mass production had begun, its defensive armament was recognized by the military as weak for a modern bomber. Beginning with series 13 (launched in April to May of 1941), the ShKAS hatch mount was replaced with a VUB-2 turret with a 12.7mm BT machine gun and a magazine capacity of 200 rounds.

Pe-2 (83-109 series)

Air battles during the first year of the war clearly showed that the Pe-2's armament did not provide effective self-defense. The Pe-2's Achilles' heel was it defense against attacks from the upper rear. This area was covered by the ShKAS machine gun in the TSS-1 mount, installed in the navigator's cockpit.

S.79 of 1937 year series

Beginning with the 2nd production series, the S.79’s dorsal “hump” was shortened (previously it had reached almost to the front door), and the teardrop-shaped fairings were removed. On each side of the hump, a couple of windows were added to better illuminate the radio operator’s and mechanic’s workspaces.

S.79 of 1939 year series

The S.79 gradually became the Regia Aeronautica’s main strike plane. In 1938, five regiments were re-equipped. That same year, about 150 “Sparviero” aircraft were in service in Italy. A year later, over 300 were in service.

S.79 of 1941 year series

By early 1941 the number of “Sparvieros" in the Italian Royal Air Force began to decrease. The more advanced CANT Z.1007 “Alcione”, also a three-engined plane, was replacing the ageing S.79. However, the “Sparviero” soon had another, just as important role as the primary “workhorse” of Italian naval aviation.

S.79B with IAR K14-II engines

During the pre-war period, SIAI actively tried to export the S.79. Alessandro Marchetti argued that twin-engine planes, not three-engine, would be best for export. So, in spite of the Royal Italian Air Force’s rejection of the S.79B bomber project, he continued work in this area, developing a prototype.

S.79bis of 1942 year series

Savoia-Marchetti designers proposed upgrading the outdated S.79 by replacing its mixed design with an all-metal airframe. This would substantially reduce the aircraft’s weight while increasing the strength of its airframe. But the Royal Italian Air Force chose a compromise, instead: change the power unit, but keep the S.79’s old airframe. The resulting variant was named the S.79bis.

S.79bis of 1943 year series

On September 8, 1943, Italy surrendered and split in half; in the north, the Germans established a puppet Italian Social Republic (RSI), while the British and Americans controlled the south. The bulk of S.79 aircraft remained in the north. In addition, the aircraft factories were located there, as well as a stock of components and unfinished S.79bis airframes, so production of the planes continued.
