The A-34 designation was assigned for contractual purposes to a Lend-Lease version of the Brewster SB2A-2 intended for delivery to Great Britain. The SB2A-2 and Model B-340E (export version) "Bermuda" (originally known as "Buccaneer") were modified for land use and much of the equipment for operating from an aircraft carrier removed (folding wings, arrestor hook and catapult gear). The rear turret of the Navy version was replaced with a flexible machine gun mount for the rear gunner. The "Bermuda" was inferior to other more capable aircraft and was used primarily in secondary roles like training and target tug.
