     The B-25 Mitchell was one of the most outstanding medium bombers of WWII. Conceived in mid-1939, the first production model flew in August 1940 and the first operational success was scored on December 24, 1941 with the destruction of a Japanese submarine. In April 1942, sixteen B-25s made a historic raid on Tokyo operating from the aircraft carrier USS Hornet under the command of General Doolittle, a raid that did little damage, but gave the U.S. a psychological lift during the early days of the Pacific Ocean hostilities. During the war years, the RAF, the Soviet Union, China Union, Brazil and the Netherlands also used the B-25. The “H” version with 16 guns and a 75mm cannon was the most lethal twin-engine bomber of WWII.
