Product description

The de Havilland Vampire was a British jet fighter developed during WWII. It was the second jet, after the Gloster Meteor, operated by the RAF. The Vampire Mk.5, which flew in June 1948, was a fighter-bomber modified from a Vampire F.3 fighter.
It was a single-seat monoplane aircraft, of a combined wood-and-metal construction, powered by a DH Goblin turbojet. It featured twin-boom tail configuration with two wing-root intakes, bubble canopy and was fitted with a non-ejection seat. Two external tanks or 500lb bombs could be carried under the wing, while eight 3" RPs could be attached inboard of the booms.
The Vampire replaced wartime piston-engine fighters and was in front-line service until 1953. The Vampire FB.5 equipped many RAF units in Europe, the Middle East and the Far East, while, by far, the largest number of Vampires were stationed in Germany.
Almost 3,300 Vampires of all marks were manufactured, a quarter of them built under licence in other countries, including France, Italy and Switzerland. It was also sold to many nations and operated in a wide range of environments around the world.
