Avro, in competition with DeHavilland who produced the Sea Vixen, came up with an all weather sub-sonic heavy naval fighter based on the success that they had had with the Vulcan.
This scaled down and re-designed Vulcan was powered by 2 Rolls Royce Avons with re-heat which gave exeptional acceleration while the overall design lead to an exceptionally stable weapons platform. Initially it was armed with 4 Redtop missiles and 2 20mm Aden Cannon.
AG1 = fold wings down (or up) and start engines
AG2 = Undercarriage doors LandingGear = wheel retract mechanisms
AG3 = Arrestor hook
AG4 = air brakes
AG5 = Nav Lights
I started by scaling the wingspan of a vulcan down to 2/3rds ish size so this has a smaller wing and more swept leading edge. I then scaled the whole thing down to suit a single cockpit.
