Douglas A-26D Invader

The Douglas A-26D Invader was an improved version of the solid-nosed A-26B, with more powerful engines. A single prototype was produced, probably by fitting a standard A-26B with two Chevrolet built 2,100hp R-2800-83 engines. This increased the aircraft's top speed by 80mph, and Douglas received an order for 750 A-26Ds, but this was cancelled after the end of the war in the Pacific and before any aircraft had been completed.
