Martin XB-27

Last revised April 17, 2000

The Martin XB-27 (Model 182) was to have been a high-altitude version of the B-26 Marauder. It was to have been powered by a pair of turbosupercharged Pratt & Whitney R-2800-9 air-cooled radial engines and was to have had a pressurized cockpit. The crew was to have consisted of seven, and estimated maximum speed was 376 mph. However, the project was cancelled before anything could be built.
