The USN actually used B-25 of several variants operationally with the designation
PBJ-1 and even conducted carrier trials on board USN Shangri La, although no missions
of Navy Mitchells were ever flown from a carrier.
(from Squadron Signal No.34)
It takes a long time, before all mistakes are made ...

      Were they all known as PBJ-1, regardless of noses fitted?

The Signal Squadron issue say, that PBJ-1 was the designation for all
Navy B-25, the suffix were the same, as for the USAF versions,
e.g. PBJ-1D for the B-25D; PBJ-1H for the B-25H and so on ...

Hi,

What was that bomber for Martin ?

That looks like an extreme variation on the basic Marauder concept.  I wonder if that was from during the design evolution or is a separate model/study?

... This radical Army bomber design with canards and twin tailbooms in early pre-WW II markings is the
Martin model 189 , designs No.4 , dated Jan.23,1940 and shows a strong family resemblence to the model 179 , better known as the B-26 Marauder.
Wingspan of the 189-4 is 73ft.8in....

So far :"Designers' Dreams"  by David Ostrowski in: Skyways No.37 of Jan.1996.
           page: 25.
Highly recommended..

Hi, Pometablava

Thanks

Unfortunately I have no more info about that design.

About the "quote" function you only have to click the button I show you in the attached image and paste the text in between.

Regards,

Antonio

In early 1945 Convair had initiated an in house study for a very heavy flying wing
bomber aircraft.This was based  around the same requirements used for the B-36.
10.000 pounds of bombs-range 10.000 miles
six 19 foot pusher props driven by turbosupercharged X-Wasp engines.
crew of 12 in two presurised cabins.

The goal was to see if the flying wing offered sufficient
promise to drive possible changes to the B-36 configuration.

No Convair design number found.

Among the sources : Magnesium Overcast .The story of the Convair B-36
                             Denis R. Jenkins- Speciallity Press.USA. 2001.
