The Avro Vulcan (later Hawker Siddeley Vulcan) is a jet-powered tail-less delta wing high-altitude strategic bomber which was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) from 1956 until 1984. Aircraft manufacturer A.V. Roe and Company (Avro) designed the Vulcan in response to a need for a strategic long range bomber.
The Vulcan B.1 was first delivered to the RAF in 1956; deliveries of the improved Vulcan B.2 started in 1960. The B.2 featured more powerful engines, a larger wing, an improved electrical system and electronic counter-measures (ECM); many were modified to accept the Blue Steel missile. As part of the V-force, the Vulcan was the backbone of the United Kingdom’s airborne nuclear deterrent during much of the Cold War. Although the Vulcan was typically armed with nuclear weapons, it was capable of conventional bombing missions. Please check your references when doing your build.
