B-26G was the last production model of the series. A total 893 B-26G combat-ready
aircraft were built along with 57 TB-26G crew training aircraft (950 total).
The RAF received 150 -G models along with 200 B-26Fs which were all designated
Externally, the B-26F and B-26G were identical. The only way to distinguish
these two models is by serial number. Interior equipment on the B-26G
was standardized and accounts for most of the differences with the -F
The last of more than 5,000 B-26s built (all types) was delivered on
30 March 1945 and named Tail End Charlie "30".
