Approved

The B17 Flying Fortress was a heavy bomber that was equipped with ten thousand pounds of bombs at once, along with ten .50 caliber Browning M2 machine guns for defense. The bomber was commonly used by the American air force to lay waste to German cities and factories during the war, significantly hampering production. They also had a top speed of nearly three hundred miles per hour, which was incredibly fast for bombers at the time.
