Three North American B-25 Mitchell bombers equipped with 75mm nose cannons built by Oldsmobile engage in a ground attack, firing at a Nazi tank at the head of a caravan while Germans dive for cover.
The B-25 Mitchell entered service in 1941. Nearly 10,000 units were built. They could travel up to 275 mph and had a bomb load of up to 3,000 lbs.
Entering service in 1941, the twin-engine B-25 was named after aviation pioneer, Major General Billy Mitchell. North American produced nearly 10,000 B-25s, as well as AT-6/SNJ Texans and P-51 Mustangs, making North American the largest plane producer in world war II. So reliable was the B-25 that many remained in service decades after the war.
North American became part of Rockwell and is today owned by Boeing.
