- Customer Reviews
The B-24 Liberator was built in greater numbers than any other large bomber of WW2. It was a much more advanced design than the famous B-17 and was produced in many versions to improve the aircraft further. The Liberator was also supplied to the RAF and due to it's long range, it proved a valuable maritime patrol and anti submarine aircraft. so many were converted for this role and flown by Coastal Command. In this role they could carry rockets and depth charges for attacking submarines and they played an important role in the Battle of the Atlantic.
