Product description

Although somewhat antiquated in appearance when compared to its all-metal monoplane contemporaries, the Swordfish Floatplane turned out to be a formidable warplane which earned itself a place in aviation history. Its wide range of ordinance and dependability made it particularly useful in a range of battles including the attack on Taranto, which many believe played a key role in the destruction of the bismark.

By 1939 the Fleet Air Arm had 13 squadrons equipped with the Swordfish Mark I. There were also three flights of Swordfish equipped with floats, for use off aircraft catapult-equipped warships. One operating from HMS Warspite during the Second Battle of Narvik in 1940, subsequently sank the U-boat U-64.
