    The A-26 of WWII became the B-26 of Korea and Viet Nam. Check out this Korean veterans website: http://www.13thbombsquadron.org/

    "Formerly known as the A-26 ("A" for attack), it was redesignated "B-26" in 1948 after the Air Force dropped the original Martin B-26 Marauder from its inventory.

    To further what John said about the B-26 Maurauder it also had the nickname of "Baltimore *****" derived from the location of the assembly line I think and as previously mentioned the narrow wingspan that that inspired the also mentioned "no visible means of support". The planes rep got so bad and so many pilots said that it was impossible to fly in any phase of flight with only one engine that they brought in Jimmy Doolittle who took off flew around and landed all on one engine. Needless to say it's rep improved after that.
