Airifix A03032 Fairey Battle 1/72

Airfix Model Kit




Designed to replace the Hawker Hart biplane the Battle was designed as
a high speed day light bomber. Powered by the Rolls Royce Merlin the
Battle was for the time a highly advanced machine. However such was
the pace of development at that time that outbreak of World War Two
the Battle was hopelessly outclassed. Exported to Belgium and Greece
the battle proved to be a liability in combat, underpowered and very
vulnerable to enemy air attack. It ended its service as a trainer and
target tug.
