  2. Canberra B(I).68

    Refurbished B(I).8 bomber sold to Fuerza Aérea del Perú (FAP).
    Peruvian Air Force (FAP) Canberras flew combat sorties against Ecuadorian positions during the Cenepa War in 1995.
    On 6 February 1995, a Canberra Mk 68 disappeared over the operations zone;
    the aircraft had apparently struck a hill in poor weather conditions. Peru retired its Canberras in June 2008
    WHAT'S IN:
    - a new plane, 4 skins, decals
    - screens, pilot, weapons etc
    CREDITS:
    - Bobrock: plane
    - Soulfreak: templates & tweakings
    - Paulopanz: skins, decals, screens
    NOTES:
    - the first 3 skins are about FAP Canberra B(I).8 as Canberra B(I).68 were refurbished in 1974
      I add them to the pack so You have a whole FAP line up. When B(I).8 will be ready You could
      use them as skins and edit data and userilist inis if you like.
    - this little job is dedicated to a friend of mine who collects all FAP planes
    - maybe someone else could use to build up the Cenepa war against Ecuador....

  4. SAAF Canberras

    In 1963 the South African Air Force (SAAF) procured six B(I) Mk.12 Canberra interdictors and three T. Mk.4’s from Britain.
    Initially the Canberra was seen as an interim measure until the arrival of Hawker-Siddeley Buccaneers in 1965.
    The SAAF used the B(I) Mk.12 as bombers and interdictors over a 27 year period.
    The SAAF T.4 had Glass nose too alongside the solid nose ones.
     

    WHAT'S IN
     

    - Canberra Mk.12
    - Canberra T.Mk.4
    - Silver & Blue Skins
    - Decalset
    - Screens
    - Weapons
    - Pilot

  8. Canberra Mk.2 - ultimate install

    The English Electric Canberra is a British first-generation jet-powered light bomber manufactured in large numbers through the 1950s. The Canberra could fly at a higher altitude than any other bomber through the 1950s and set a world altitude record of 70,310 ft (21,430 m) in 1957. Due to its ability to evade the early jet interceptors, and its significant performance advancement over contemporary piston-engined bombers, the Canberra was a popular export product and served with many nations.
     
    Canberra B Mk.2 was the first production version, crew increased to three with addition of bomb aimer, Avon R.A.3 engines with 6,500 lbf (28.91 kN) of thrust, wingtip fuel tanks. 418 built by English Electric (208), Avro (75), Handley Page (75) and Short Brothers & Harlan (60) including eight for export (Australia, United States and Venezuela).

  9. Canberra B(I) mk8

    Canberra B(I) mk8 for the "Strike Fighters 2" Series
    by Ahmed Junaid Raza
     
    Special thanks to "Spinners" for tweaking the 3D model to be more like the real Canberra - didn't realise they were so out!
     
    Updated for SF 2 series by MigBuster and Spinners (July 2009)
     
    Temp Gunpack by Wrench (July 2009)
     
     
     
    The B(I) mk8 was derived from the B(I)mk6 and retains the same Engines, fuel load and loadout. The main change was a redesigned nose and offset fighter style canopy - which was put in place due to the targetting difficulties of the B.mk2 fishbowl style canopy.
     
    The B.1 Mk8 Interdictor came into service in 1956 with around 69 being built. Other Later variants also used the offset Fighter style canopy.

    Special thanks to "Spinners" for tweaking the 3D model to be more like the real Canberra - didn't realise they were so out!
     
    Updated for SF 2 series by MigBuster and Spinners (July 2009)
     
     
     
    The B.mk20 was licence built B.mk2 by the Government Aircraft Factories, Melbourne, Australia. It featured an increased fuel capacity thanks to wing fuel tanks and outer wing pylons were also added.
     
    The B.mk20 was used by the Australian RAAF between around 1966 and 1971 in conflict during the Vietnam war as part of the US 35th TFW.
     
    The version in this pack is the later model with the Avon 109 engines and has outer wing pylons according to pictures ive seen. It is also mentioned that the RAAF could use wingtip racks for extra bombs though not too sure on that.

    In 1957 the Royal Rhodesian Air Force ordered 15 B.2s and three T.4s. These were delivered two years later. These were said to have seen action in several regional wars in the area. The version here represents the RRAF from 1971 to 1980. (Rhodesia is now called Zimbabwe)
     
     
    In 1961 three ex-RAF Canberras were purchased by Germany for trials and experimental use flying with Erprobungstelle 61 - these were delived in 1966.

    The RAF's first bomber, the Canberra, had a career spanning over 51 years on the front lines. Chief designer W. Petter had just joined the design team at English Electric when work began on the Canberra. He changed the swept wings of the original design to a more unconventional design with the engines part way out on, and embedded in, the wing. The end sections of the wings were broad and square, and two powerful Rolls-Royce Avon engines completed the design. The crew of two sat side-by-side in a pressurized cabin. With good fuel economy, and excellent maneuverability at all altitudes, the EE.A1 was an instant success.
     
    The prototype was first flown on May 13, 1949, and was problem-free. The first four prototypes were designated the Canberra B.MK 1, and were intended for use with a radar-assisted bomb aiming system. A delay in this system led to the production of a day bomber prototype, the Canberra B.MK 2, and the first operational aircraft were delivered on May 25, 1951.
     
    Around 410 B.mk2s were built for the RAF - some saw action in the 1956 Suez crisis.

  18. Royal New Zealand Airforce Canberra B.2 & B(I) Mk12 for SF2

    Strike Fighters 2 Canberra B(I) mk12 operated by the Royal New Zealand Air force and Canberra B.2 loaned by the RNZAF before the purchase of the mk12
     
     
    The B.2 is the stock B.2 with RNZAF skin/markings and make flyable with the cockpit from the SF B.2 by Ahmed Junaid Raza & Daniel "Kessselbrut" Himmel
     
    The mk12 was made by modifying the Canberra B(I) mk12 (South African AF) by Ahmed Junaid Raza
     
    Credit also goes to MigBuster and spinners for their part in the original mods and of course Third Wire.
     
    To install place files in appropriate folders and override. Make sure you read the original readme as well.
     
    You will need the Europe expansion Pack 2 to use the B.2
     
     
    History on the RNZAF Canberra:
     
    In 1958, while awaiting delivery of their own Canberras, the RNZAF "hired" a squadron of 17 B.2s and three T.4s from the RAF as part of the Commonwealth Strategic Reserve. The B.2s and one T.4 were used, from 1958 until 1962, by the then newly formed RNZAF 75 Squadron. The squadron was based at RAF Tengah (Singapore) and became involved in active service during the Malayan emergency with their first bombing raid being carried out on 30 September 1959.
    In February 1958 New Zealand placed a contract for 11 aircraft for use by 14 Sqd, the contract called for nine B(I)12 and two T.13 Canberras. The B(I)12 was the equivalent of the RAF's B(I)8 but with auto-pilot and modified navigation kit. The T.13 was equivalent to the T.4 but with auto-pilot and an extra bomb bay fuel tank.
    14 Squadron was based at RNZAF Ohakea in New Zealand
    Initially the squadron continued to use their D.H. Vampires for rocket projectile firing practice as the B(I)12s did not get this capability until December 1961. Trials then began with wing-pylon mounted Microcell rocket launchers each holding 37 rockets. Gradually the squadron achieved operational status in all its roles, including anti-shipping, and took part in deployment exercises to Singapore as part of the Commonwealth Reinforcement Force.
    In late 1962, the OCU was incorporated into the squadron as "C" Flight giving 14 Squadron a strength of ten B(I)12s and two T.13s. In 1964 the B(I)12s received their camouflage paint scheme ready for deployment to Singapore. 14 Sqd arrived in Singapore in September 1964 to assist in Operation Confrontation against Indonesia. A month later they went to the forward base at Labuan but were moved back to Tengah a week later! 14 Sqd stayed as part of the FEAF and, in March 1965, moved to RAAF Butterworth in Malaya. Not for long however. In 1966 the squadron returned to RNZAF Ohakea. Sadly, in the final month at Butterworth, NZ6104 crashed during a low-level RP attack at the China Rock range.
    Back in NZ, the decision had been taken to phase out the B(I)12 which duly took place in July 1970. New Zealand's Canberras were sold as a job-lot to India in November 1970. Some are still flying today
