Australia : Beaufort Mk VIII
The Bristol Beaufort was a twin-engined torpedo-bomber that the Coast Guard actively used in the UK and Australia.
The Beaufort design process began in 1935, when the UK’s Air Ministry formulated the M.15/35 and G.24/35 specifications for the development of a torpedo bomber and a reconnaissance plane, respectively
The last Australian modification, the Beaufort Mk.VIII, used 1200 hp engines and had an ASV Mk.II radar. It also had additional wing-mounted fuel tanks.
This modification made up 520 of the 700 Beauforts built in Australia.
