The Blackburn Buccaneer is a British carrier-capable attack aircraft designed in the 1950s for the Royal Navy. The Buccaneer S.2, was equipped with more powerful Rolls-Royce Spey jet engines. The Buccaneer was also offered as a possible solution for the Royal Air Force (RAF) requirement for a supersonic interdictor carrying nuclear weapons. It was rejected as not meeting the specification in fa.vour of the much more advanced supersonic BAC TSR-2, but the cost of the TSR-2 programme led to its cancellation, only to be followed by the cancellation of its selected replacement, the General Dynamics F-111K. The RAF purchased Buccaneers and American Phantom IIs as TSR-2 substitutes, the Buccaneer entering RAF service in 1969.
