Product Description

AK Interactive - Aces High Magazine Issue 17: Torpedo Achtung

 The relationship of aviation with the sea dates back to its most ancient beginnings with the appearance of seaplanes in the first years of the 20th century. Its high potential as a deadly and strategic weapon in the naval battlefield was discovered during World War I.

During the interwar period, the main powers began to modernize naval aviation and manufacture aircraft designed exclusively for this purpose. The zenith of its importance would come during World War II, where naval aircraft were broadly used in different theaters of operations and many times had decisive impact on
the course of events. The most famous was the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, but there were many more famous actions, such as the Taranto raid of Fairey Swordfish biplanes in November 1940, or the battles between aircraft carriers in the Pacific, such as Midway or the Coral Sea.

In this ACES HIGH issue the focus is on six aircraft which became legends for the
simple fact of carrying torpedos during their missions.

Contents:

– TBM-3 Avenger.
– Bristol Beaufighter TF.Mk.X.
– Nakajima B5N “Kate”.
– Lockheed P-3C Orion.
– Fairey Swordfish Mk.I.
– Latecoere 298.
