In 1938 realising this gap within the Inventory Bristol set off on a private venture to produce an aircraft to fulfill the need. The Beaufighter was born. Based off the Beaufort torpedo based, the Beaufighter would be one of the most heavily armed strike aircraft of the war. Entering service as a nightfighter, a role at which it excelled in, throughout its career it was adapted to undertake a variety of roles that included anti-shipping operations, ground attack and convoy protection. Known for being a rugged and hard hitting strike aircraft, it served with distinction in all major theatres of the Second World War. It was also supossedly nicknamed the ‘Whispering Death” by the Japanese. It saw service with 52 squadrons and 5,562 were built in Britain and a further 364 in Australia.
