    In the Beginning......A was for attack and B was for bomber. Attack in this case translating as close air support more than anything else. Around the A-20, the line between attack aircraft and light bombers became blurred to the point of indistinguishableness.
    When the USAF came into being, close air support became the Army's responsibility, and the Air Force got rid of the "A" designation. (later the Army would lose all armed fixed wing aircraft, and the helicopter would fill the traditional "attack" role) The B-26 Marauder was declared obsolete and the A-26 Avenger was redesignated "B"-26.

    The Invader served through Korea and into Viet Nam as B-26. During Viet Nam it was deemed politically improper to have "Bombers" (gasp horrors) stationed at bases in neighboring countries, so the Invaders were re-redesignated back to their original designation as "A"-26's. Evidently Attacking the enemy was alright, but Bombing them wasn't.
