Convair PB4Y-2/P4Y-2 Privateerby Nicholas A. Veronico, Steve Ginter
The Privateer was a heavily armed (6-twin .50 cal. machine gun turrets) 4-engine, long range, land-based, patrol bomber developed from the famous B-24/PB4Y-1 Liberator. It was responsible for sinking over 550 Japanese ships and shooting down almost 50 enemy aircraft. It usually operated alone but sometimes with a second Privateer on its missions lasting up to 11-12 hours at a time.
