North American B-25H Mitchell. It was intended for strafing Japanese ships, that's why they included the 75mm gun, to increase the chance of disabling or possibly even sinking unarmored ships. This was just before the advent of aerial rockets for ground attack aircraft. Other strafing versions of the B-25 had up to 12 forward firing .50 caliber machine guns, six in the nose, two more on each side of the nose and the two in the top turret.
