Wiki info about Beaufort Mk VIII

Official War Thunder wiki

The Bristol Beaufort was a twin-engine torpedo-bomber used in large numbers by RAF Coastal Command and the Royal Australian Air Force. The Beaufort design process began in 1935, when Great Britain’s Air Ministry formulated the M.15/35 and G.24/35 specifications for the development of a torpedo bomber and a general reconnaissance aircraft/bomber, respectively. While working on these aircraft designs Bristol proposed one aircraft, manufactured in two different variants, for both of these specifications. After submitting two separate designs to the Air Ministry, the favoured design was selected and named the Beaufort. The Beaufort was based on the Blenheim light bomber, from which were borrowed the designs of the wing, tail unit, and landing gear. To increase the bomb bay’s size to carry a torpedo, the cockpit’s floor was raised. Nevertheless, the torpedo did not fully fit in the bomb bay and had to be partially suspended. Bristol was commissioned in August 1936 to produce 78 Beauforts, before the first prototype had even flown. Teething problems with the prototype resulted in a number of design modifications, and the first aircraft did not enter service until January 1940. In 1940, production of the Beaufort began in Australia. But due to the fact that the Australian government was not confident in an uninterrupted supply of Taurus engines, it was decided that the Twin Wasp engine would be used instead. In addition, the Australians expanded the fin to increase stability. 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 in addition to the 1180 aircraft built in Britain until production ceased in November 1944.
