Victory at Sea: Royal Navy Aircraft

The British air raid on the Italian port of Taranto demonstrated to the worldthe vulnerability of ships against attacks from the air. The planes of the FleetAir Arm of the Royal Navy proved a scourge to Axis forces throughout everytheatre of the war.

Short Sunderland Flying Boat: The Sunderland was a flying boat, developed forgeneral reconnaissance from the S.23 Empire or C-class flying boat, theflagship of Imperial Airways. When British shipping came under constant attackby German U-boats, Sunderlands patrolled the approaches, or flew convoyprotection missions. When a U-boat was sighted, Sunderlands tried to attack itbefore it submerged. Although sometimes described as depth charges, its bombswere set to explode at a shallow depth and were equally effective againstsurfaced submarines.

Hawker Hurricane: After having gained fame in the Battle of Britain where itwas the mainstay of the RAF, the Hurricane went on to serve throughout the war.As the war progressed, it was slowly outmoded as a frontline fighter but adoptedother roles such as ground attack and tank busting. The Sea Hurricane was animportant development but rapidly fell out of favour for carrier operations.

Fairey Fulmar: At first rejected by the RAF, the Fulmar fulfilled the FleetAir Arm’s requirement for a fighter with the same firepower as a Spitfire orHurricane. Though inferior to a dedicated single-seat fighter, the Fulmar wasreliable and long-ranged, making it suited for carrier operations. However, itwas to be replaced halfway through the war by the much more capable Seafire.
