Discover our selection of diecast models of the Douglas A-20 Havoc - Precision Crafted, Historically Significant, and Collectible Aircraft Models.

The Douglas A-20 Havoc, known as the "Boston" in British service, was a versatile American attack, light bomber, and night fighter aircraft of World War II. Designed by the Douglas Aircraft Company, it was notable for its speed, maneuverability, and relatively heavy armament for its size.

Widely used by the Allies, including the United States Army Air Forces, Royal Air Force, and Soviet Air Force, the A-20 Havoc excelled in various roles such as ground attack, reconnaissance, and light bombing missions. Its variants included the A-20G, which was heavily armed with guns in the nose for strafing, and the A-20J/K models, which featured a glass nose for bombardier operation. The Havoc's effectiveness in diverse combat environments, from the deserts of North Africa to the Eastern Front, and its role in shaping light bomber tactics during the war make it a subject of great interest for military aviation historians and model collectors, particularly those with a focus on WWII tactical bombing and multi-role aircraft.
