US Navy sought for a new and high-performance carrier-based aircraft. History is made during the night!
Before the US Navy had both SB/Scout Bomber and TB/Torpedo Bomber and assigned them separate airplanes, but in 1943, with the idea of having one pilot carry out all missions, a requirements specification for a single-seat carrier-based attack aircraft (BT/Bomber Torpedo) was presented to the manufacturers. In response to the request, Ed Heinemann from Douglas was convinced that the new aircraft would be able to perform the missions required by the Navy. He asked for permission to halt the production of an aircraft, which was under development, and asked for a permission to allocate the budget to a new bomber. Finally, Heinemann and his two men drew up the conceptual design drawings overnight, obtained parliamentary approval and successfully completed the first aircraft by the deadline. This special package includes VA-165 and VA-176 in gull grey/white paint as well as VA-104 and VA-155 markings for AD-6 in sea blue paint.
