Only thing about 'Privateer' is that Consolidated used it so it would be about the same as McDonnell using 'Mustang' for the F4H-1. BTW I am aware that Brigand was used by Bristol for their little-known attack aircraft but that's on the other side of the pond.

The Privateer was a lumbering single tail Liberator lay-off used for maritime patrol, they shouldn't have used that name in the first place ...........

and bristol brigands had a fairly short service life, while hte consoldated PB4Y-2 was still at work into the ealy 60s.

 

I'd vote for Brigand
