The twin-engined passenger aircraft which proved its value during the war as a light bomber.
Meet the Hudson Mk V!
Aviation has presented many cases of military machines which, after the end of the conflict, were adapted for use in civilian service. The twin-engine Lockheed Super Electra was a good example that went in the complete opposite direction however. A well known and respected passenger aircraft became a no less recognizable light bomber, know in the European World War II theater as the Hudson.
The first machines ordered were transported from the United States to Great Britain in early 1939, being used in the spring before the outbreak of World War II by the RAF to patrol the North Sea. The Hudson also enrolled in history as the first Allied aircraft operating from the British Isles credited with shooting down a German aircraft during the opening stages of World War II. The event took place on October 8th 1939 over a cold Jutland.
We are pleased to present to you the Royal Air Force successor of the well-known Bristol Beaufighter. The Bristol Brigand that will arrive in Update 1.63 Desert Hunters in the designated B.1 bomber variant.
We are pleased to present to you the Royal Air Force successor of the well-known Bristol Beaufighter - the Bristol Brigand that will arrive in Update 1.63 Desert Hunters in the designated B.1 bomber variant. The Bristol Brigand was the successor to the aging Bristol Beaufighter - a heavy 2 engine fighter that was able to step into a wide range of combat roles - from Night Fighter, Ground Attack aircraft to Naval torpedo bomber. The Brigand was developed during World War 2, but came too late to see service or to have any meaningful impact on the outcome of the war. It was later deployed during the Malayan Emergency.
The main idea behind producing a new type of multi-role heavy fighter was to simplify the production and logistics (the new Brigand reconstructed the tail of the existing “Buckingham” medium bomber), while aiming for higher speed and incorporating the implementation of newer technologies. The Brigand B.1 bomber variant was powered by two Bristol Centaurus 57 powerplants, each generating a maximum continuous power of 2,165 hp which allowed the aircraft to reach a maximum speed of 357 mph (574 km/h) at 16,500 feet (5,030 m). The weight of the empty aircraft was slightly over 11 tons and it was operated by a 3 man crew.
