It has the Dan Dare looks but performance is a bit of a sprint for a bomber. The HP Victor cruising faster 10,000 ft higher and 3000 miles further. The undercarriage may have lead to challenging landing characteristics. Not surprising it went no further than prototype.
50s and early 60s aircraft are so cool but no one makes games with them in it. WHY!!!!!?!?!?
this aircraft is epic!!!!!!!!
A bigger version of the Yak-28 Firebar.
