The Heavies

As we transition from WW1 to WW2 we had 20 years of development in the air race. So for this post I’m doing the bombers of WW1 and the new bomber in development in the early 1930’s

First we have the Carproni CA.36 a bomber designed by an Italian gentleman Gianni Carproni.

And next, after WW1 the U.S. started to develop bigger bombers that could carry more bombs and fly longer distances at higher altitudes. Thus the Martin MB2 was born in the early 1930’s. Keep in mind, in less than 10 years they moved on to the B-14, B24, B25 and the B26 and the big boy the B29.
