First flown in January of 1939, and officially introduced two years later, the A-20 (originally designated the DB-7) was a multi-purpose aircraft serving with numerous Allied militaries. The Soviets received the lion's share of the production run, with one in three units going to Russia. Bomber and attacker variants were generally referred to as the "Boston," while night fighter and intruders were known as the "Havoc." It was retired from the U.S. Air Force shortly after the war.
