United Kingdom : Swordfish Mk I
The Swordfish torpedo bomber was essentially a biplane suitable for reconnaissance, bombing, and attacking. In the beginning of the 1930s, Britain creates a prototype suitable for the needs of the Navy. Its ability to launch torpedo attacks and to fly from aircraft carriers is a compulsory feature.
The Mk.I modification features an additional fuel tank in the central part of the cabin, in the place of the navigator. Swordfish was capable of carrying on its suspension a total weight of up to 730 kg. The underwing units allow the utilization of different types of weapons: high-explosive bombs of 250 and 500 lb., depth-charge bombs, flare bombs, incendiary bombs, and a little later — jet missiles. In spite of their obsolete design, the Swordfish aircraft demolished more enemy ships than any other type of Allies-operated aircraft.
