In this second edition of The British Bomber sixty years of design and development of over 560 different types are recorded in this analytical and comprehensive narrative, accompanied by 311 photographs and 104 three-view drawings, which have been selected to give as complete a story as possible of this fascinating class of British aeroplane. With the exceptions of the fighter-bomber and the flying-boat, all types capable of carrying bombs or torpedoes are described, including military and naval landplanes and floatplanes, general purpose aircraft, dive-bombers and costal defence patrol machines, from the beginnings in the days of the R.F.C. and R.N.A.S. through to the immensely powerful strike-force of the R.A.F. and the F.A.A. of today. Interspersed among the aircraft which became famous are full details of the other designs which were constructed as prototypes only or remained simply projects but which played their part in the development of those which eventually passed into service. This revised edition includes later information concerning the Hawker Siddeley Nimrod and details of the Panavia Multi-Role Combat Aircraft which embraces bombing among its diverse duties. The British Bomber embodies valuable contributions from the archives of the country's aircraft industry and material not previously available from official sources. Extensive data tables are provided to make this the most complete and authoritative history of the British bomber ever published. (Inside cover)… (more)
