The B-14 Marauder won the competition for a new American bomber as part of the Fleet 2300 Project. It went from competition to deployment in less than ten years, and enjoyed mass production for decades before being replaced in the later years of The War. Many military historians consider it to be the most successful design of the entire Fleet 2300 Project. The Marauder certainly became the most widely deployed, and once it was upgraded with a hyperdrive and armed with the newest torpedo technologies it became a deadly warship hunter. Marauders claimed more warship kills than any other design class by the time The War came to an end. They were amazing to watch in action.
