Supermarine Heron Torpedo Bomber

Pre-profile design

The Supermarine Heron was a twin-engine all-weather torpedo bomber designed in 1940 and built in ’41. It would have been used alongside the Fairey Kingfisher and been used instead for missions that required a larger airframe. The Heron is equipped with 6 (!) mini torpedoes with the strategy of rather than carry 1 or 2 large torps which could easily miss, it had 6 smaller torps to overwhelm the target. It has an impressive speed, decent manoeuvrability and a crew of four. I think I also xml modded it so it could have some armour too. Enjoy ;)

Normal flight controls
VTOL down: Raise bomb bay doors
AG1: Drop all torps
Trim: Trim I think...
