The Blackburn Buccaneer was an attack aircraft designed for the Royal Navy for use on aircraft carriers. The initial version was underpowered, so the Rolls Royce Spey engine was fitted to produce the S.2 version. This could now take off with it's full fuel and ordnance loadout. It could carry nuclear bombs, conventional bombs and rockets as well as anti ship guided missiles. It was also used by the RAF after the TSR 2 program was cancelled and the plan to buy the F-111 was also cancelled and when the Royal Navy retired HMS Ark Royal in 1978, the remaining Navy aircraft were passed to the RAF. The Buccaneer was used in the 1991 Gulf War and retired by the the RAF in 1994. The South African Air Force also used the type.
