XA-38 Grizzly. Not only is it the best kind of chewing tobacco, but it also has the same engines as the Connie. And a 75mm cannon.

The XA-38 Grizzly is supposed to replace the Douglas A-20 Havoc.
And the Boston is the Havoc's British/Commonwealth export version.

Similarly in the RCAF, the Bombardier Challenger (RCAF designation CC-144) is also used as a VIP transport:

It's a C-25 and a C-32. They're not "Air Force One" or "Air Force Two" unless they are, respectively, carrying POTUS or VPOTUS. We use the C-32's for all sorts of important people, like cabinet members and Nancy Pelosi. AND they have better short-field capability than the C-25's, so POTUSes will take those around when they're going to the boonies. Hell, Bush used to ride around in a Gulfstream and my dad was Air Force Three in a C-12 once.

My tags for the president are only on the VC-25A. Besides, the relation was that they were VIP aircraft. WTH is POTUS and VPOTUS?

POTUS = President Of The United States
Yes that's an abbreviation actually used in real life. You can guess what VPOTUS is.

In Canada, aircraft carrying the PM is CANFORCE ONE; with the Governor General onboard it's the RIDEAU ONE (the name of the official residence of the GG is called the Rideau Hall).

E-4, because it is also a converted 747-200 that likes to hang out with C-32s.
