After World War II, the technical and financial demands of bomber development in the jet age meant that modern, purpose-designed bombers were out Author: War Is Boring. German aircraft designs were consistently among the most advanced and successful of the war.

Of all the nations, Germany was the first to begin to make significant use of jet aircraft, although these nevertheless came too late in the war and in insufficient quantity to have a decisive effect on the course of the air war.

The Avro Lancaster bomber was one of the most effective aircraft of World War II. They were used by the British Royal Air Force to calb (6,kg) of bombs to Germany and even further. The Lancasters flew from Bomber Command’s bases in the east of England.All aircraft models are designed to have flight characteristics and some elements of artistic design realistically replicating World War II era aircraft.
