A little B29 history (courtesy of Wikipedia). In 1938, before the United States was officially involved of WWII, the United States Army Air Corp had a request in for a long range pressurized bomber. Boeing submitted their prototype Model 345 in 1940. That was the start of the most famous bombers in WWII, the B29 Superfortress, a four-engine propeller-driven heavy bomber which was flown during World War II and the Korean War.
It was one of the largest aircraft operational during World War II and featured state-of-the-art technology. Innovations introduced included a pressurized cabin, dual-wheeled, tricycle landing gear, and an analog computer-controlled fire-control system directing four remote machine gun turrets that could be operated by a single gunner and a fire-control officer. A manned tail gun installation was semi-remote.
