The Consolidated PB4Y was a long-range bomber used by the United States Navy during World War II. Based on the B-24 Liberator, designed by Consolidated Aircraft, the PB4Y was adapted for naval service with modifications for maritime patrol and anti-submarine warfare missions.

Notable for its distinctive single-tail design in the PB4Y-2 Privateer variant, the aircraft was equipped with powerful armaments and advanced radar for its time, making it effective in its role as a submarine hunter and patrol bomber. The PB4Y served with distinction in both the Atlantic and Pacific theaters, contributing significantly to Allied maritime surveillance and anti-submarine efforts. After the war, the PB4Y continued to serve in various capacities, including as a reconnaissance and weather observation platform. The Consolidated PB4Y's role in extending the reach of naval aviation and its contribution to the Allied victory in World War II make it a fascinating subject for military aviation enthusiasts and model collectors, especially those interested in the evolution of maritime patrol aircraft and their operational history.
