Description

Airfix Avro Shackleton MR.2, 1:72 Scale, Model Kit

The MR.2 Shackleton was introduced in 1953 and introduced a very different nose position to the MR.1, housing two 20 mm cannons, with an additional two in a Dorset turret. Combined with its load of torpedoes or depth chargers the Shackleton in this guise was relatively heavily armed for a maritime patrol aircraft. Other uses for the ‘Growler’ was as a colonial policing machine (replacing the Lincoln in this role) as well as monitoring the oceans for drug and arms smugglers, enforcing UN embargos and Air Sea Rescue Work; a role the aircraft performed admirably throughout its service. Although the AEW.2 version remained in service until 1991, the MR.2 was phased out in favor of the Nimrod in the 1970's.
