Description Extended Information
 
Corgi AA36305 Royal Navy Fairey Swordfish Mk. II Torpedo Plane - Fleet Air Arm, No. 816 Naval Air Squadron, July 1944 (1:72 Scale) "Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."
- British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, commenting on the British airmen in the Battle of Britain

The Fairey Swordfish was a torpedo bomber built by the Fairey Aviation Company and used by the Fleet Air Arm of the Royal Navy during World War II. Affectionately known as the Stringbag by its crews, it was outdated by 1939, but achieved some spectacular successes during the war, such as the destruction of the Regia Marina (the Italian Navy) in Taranto and the famous crippling of the German battleship Bismarck. It was operated primarily as a fleet attack aircraft, however, during its later years it was also used as an anti-submarine and training craft. Designed in the 1930s, Swordfish remained in frontline service through to the end of the war in Europe in 1945.

This particular 1:72 scale replica of a Swordfish served with the Fleet Air Arm, No. 816 NAS, during July 1944. Sold Out!
