Martin Mars prototype at the Martin factory, repaired following the #3 engine fire on 5 December 1941, but still before its first flight. It is seen here still in its original configuration as a patrol bomber, complete with gun turrets and provisions for bombing. However, the aircraft was soon to be converted to XPB2M-1R transport aircraft, which involved removing all armament and armored plating, and adding extra cargo hatches, cargo loading equipment and reinforcing the decking.

The Martin Mars prototype in take-off at an unknown location, possibly the Pacific off San Francisco. This photo was taken circa 1944, about two years after it had been converted from patrol bomber to transport aircraft, by the removal of its gun turrets, bomb bays, armored plating and other combat provisions. Instead, this transport version received additional cargo hatches and cargo loading equipment, as well as reinforced decking. Photo from: US Navy / National Naval Aviation Museum
