The B-25 became most famous for outstanding work in the Pacific Theater. There, specially modified aircraft carried eight (and sometimes more) machine guns that fired forward, attacking Japanese shipping and airfields. B-25s (called PBJs in the Navy) were used in many roles besides bombers, including as submarine patrol, trainers, reconnaissance, and gunships. B-25s flew operationally during WWII in Alaska and in the Mediterranean Theater. 9,816 were delivered to the USAAF and 200 to Allied forces.
