Wiki info about Boomerang Mk I

Official War Thunder wiki

The CAC Boomerang was an Australian single-seat, single-engine fighter of mixed wood and aluminium construction. The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour on December 7, 1941 and subsequent events in the Pacific theatre of operations showed how unready Australia was for war. The country had fewer than two hundred military aircraft, most of them obsolete. At that time, the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation (CAC) only produced a trainer, the CAC Wirraway (a licensed version of the American NA-33). The License Agreement provided for modifications, so, in order to have fighter aircraft as soon as possible, the CAC decided to use the trainer as a basis for a new fighter. The CA-12 (later called the Boomerang Mk.I) was created, the first domestically produced fighter to ever roll off Australian assembly lines. The CA-12 borrowed the Wirraway’s landing gear, tail, and wing design and was powered by a liscene built American Pratt and Whitney Twin Wasp engine, rated at 1200 hp. The aircraft was armed with two 20mm Hispano cannon and four 0.303 inch Browning machine guns and could carry four 9kg smoke bombs to mark targets, one 227kg bomb, or a 265 litre external fuel tank. The CA-12 had high durability, good armament, and excellent handling characteristics at low level, although this performance deteriorated at height and the fighter’s top speed was not at all competitive. Mass production began in July 1942 and 105 Boomerang Mk I fighters were produced.
