Martin AT-23 Marauder
The Martin AT-23 was the first designation given to a number of Marauder bombers converted to act as target tugs. These aircraft were produced during 1943 by stripping the operational equipment from a number of B-26Bs and B-26Cs and replacing it with the C-5 tow target windlass and related gear. 208 AT-23As were produced from the B-26B at Baltimore and either 350 or 375 AT-23Bs were produced from the B-26C at Omaha. In 1944 theses designations were changed to TB-26B and TB-26C.
