A-26 Invader Douglas aircraft is a propeller powered twin engine light attack bomber used by US Air Force (USAF) during World War II (WWII), Korean War and Vietnam War. The A-26 Invader aircraft was manufactured by Douglas. The A-26 was an unusual design for an attack bomber of that period, as it was designed as a single pilot airplane. The traditional co-pilot's seat did not have flight controls, instead, a crew member who served as a navigator and bombardier sat in that position. A gunner who operated the defensive armament of remotely-controlled doral and ventral turrets. In the "C" model, the navigator also loaded the nose armament.

During the early phase of the Vietnam War, On Mark Engineering Company of Van Nuys, California was selected by the Air Force to extensively upgrade the Invader for a counterinsurgency role. On Mark converted 40 Invaders to the new B-26K Counter Invader standard, which included upgraded engines, re-manufactured wings and wing tip fuel tanks. In May 1966, the B-26K was re-designated A-26A and deployed in Thailand to help disrupt supplies moving along the Ho Chi Minh trail.

After military service, many A-26 Invader aircraft were converted to "water bombers" and used to fight forest fires in the United States and Canada.
