A brochure on the HP.111 shows it being used for paratroop dropping both rear doors being used. Also the addition of underwing paratroop pods could be used as well to increase capacity.

Regards,
Barry

Do you have the full brochure? I'd be interested in seeing that, I'm working on a scale model of the 111.

You'll have to contact the National Aerospace Society's Library to get that copied. Haven't been for a while so am unsure about cost(normally "ouch!") and whether you can copy all of it...

Would the Victor bomber have suffered it its fuselage was more like the HP.111 in profile?

The HP.111 drawings show wing tip tanks. Were these ever used or considered for the Victor?

The Victor B.2 had tanks halfway down the wing:
