That would make sense IMHO - better to first take down (some of) the bombers from a "safe" distance before having to chase either bombers or (escort?) fighters.starviking said:overscan said:A couple of my pics of the Vickers 559 model from RAF Stafford collection.
Arming that beast would have been quite a task! That said, it is my favourite F.155 submission - very Thunderbirds-esque.
Also, this is the first time I've seen the 559 with a Red Top missile fit - my gut feeling is that the staggered ventral carriage of the Red Dean and Red Tops would have imposed a rigid sequential pattern - Deans away before Tops.
