Martin AM Mauler
The AM, originally designated BTM, was a large single-seat shipboard attack aircraft.
There was also an electronic warfare version, the AM-1Q. The AM had been designed as a
simpler alternative to the Curtiss BTC and Douglas BTD,
and it was a better aircraft than these. Nevertheless it was overshadowed by the even
simpler and lighter AD Skyraider. In addition, the tail
structure was too weak.
