An application, made in September , requested the 'early availability' of a 'suitable aircraft'. With some reluctance, ministers approved the export of a single aircraft but emphasised that clearance had not been given for the sale of a larger number. A letter from the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office to the Ministry of Defence in January stated that little prospect was seen of this happening without ascertaining the Argentine interest and whether such interest was genuine: Despite its radical and unusual shape, the airframe was built along traditional lines.

Except for the most highly stressed parts, the whole structure was manufactured from standard grades of light alloy. The airframe was broken down into a number of major assemblies: A five-man crew, the first pilot, co-pilot, navigator radar , navigator plotter and air electronics officer AEO was accommodated within the pressure cabin on two levels; the pilots sitting on Martin-Baker 3K 3KS on the B. These seats were no more than cushions, a full harness and an oxygen and intercom facility.

The visual bomb-aimer's compartment could be fitted with a T4 Blue Devil bombsight , [69] in many B. Fuel was carried in 14 bag tanks, four in the centre fuselage above and to the rear of the nosewheel bay and five in each outer wing.

The tanks were split into four groups of almost equal capacity, each normally feeding its respective engine though cross-feeding was possible. The centre of gravity was automatically maintained by electric timers which sequenced the booster pumps on the tanks. Despite being designed before a low radar cross-section RCS and other stealth factors were ever a consideration, [73] a Royal Aircraft Establishment technical note of stated that of all the aircraft so far studied, the Vulcan appeared by far the simplest radar echoing object, due to its shape: The two prototype Vulcans were finished in gloss white.

With the adoption of low-level attack profiles in the mids, B. The last 13 Vulcan B. Beginning in , 10 Vulcans received a wrap-around camouflage of dark sea grey and dark green [81] [82] because, during Red Flag exercises in the US, defending SAM forces had found that the grey-painted undersides of the Vulcan became much more visible against the ground at high angles of bank. The original Vulcan B. Decca Doppler 72 replaced Green Satin in the B. The original ECM fit as fitted to the B.

The aircraft was controlled by a fighter-type control stick and rudder bar which operated the powered flying controls PFCs. Artificial feel and autostabilisation in the form of pitch and yaw dampers were provided, as well as an auto mach trimmer.

The flight instruments in the B. The main electrical system on the B. Backup power was provided by four 24V 40 Ah batteries connected in series providing 96V. The 28V DC system was backed up by a single 24V battery.

For greater efficiency and higher reliability, [] the main system on the B. Engine starting was then by air-starters supplied from a Palouste compressor on the ground. The change to an AC system was a significant improvement. The Vulcan's powered flying controls were hydraulically actuated but each powered flying control unit PFCU had a hydraulic pump which was driven by an electric motor.

The standby batteries on the B. The main hydraulic system provided pressure for undercarriage raising and lowering and bogie trim; nosewheel centring and steering; wheelbrakes fitted with Maxarets ; bomb doors opening and closing; and B.

Hydraulic pressure was provided by three hydraulic pumps fitted to Nos. An electrically operated hydraulic power pack EHPP could be used to operate the bomb doors and recharge the brake accumulators. A compressed air later nitrogen system was provided for emergency undercarriage lowering. Each Vulcan had four engines buried in the wings, positioned in pairs close to the fuselage.

The engine's design began in , intended to power the Bristol Aeroplane Company 's own rival design to the Vulcan. Later aircraft were delivered with Olympus s. The Olympus was designated on being fitted with a rapid air starter.

The tour was to be an important demonstration of the range and capabilities of the aircraft, but it also had other benefits in the form of conducting goodwill visits in various countries; in later life Vulcans routinely visited various nations and distant parts of the former British Empire as a show of support and military protection.

The first two aircraft were delivered to OCU in January and the training of crews started on 21 February ; in the following months more aircraft were delivered to the OCU. In order to increase the mission range and flight time for Vulcan operations, in-flight refuelling capabilities were added in onwards; several Valiant bombers were refurbished as tankers to refuel the Vulcans.

Vulcans did some very long range missions. The results of the tests were classified until As part of Britain's independent nuclear deterrent, the Vulcan initially carried Britain's first nuclear weapon, the Blue Danube gravity bomb.

These were supplemented by U. The Valiant retained U. Red Beard was pre-positioned in Singapore for use by Vulcan and Victor bombers. To supplement it until the Royal Navy took on the deterrent role with Polaris ICBM-equipped submarines, the Vulcan bombers adopted a new mission profile of flying high during clear transit, dropping down low to avoid enemy defences on approach, and deploying a parachute-retarded bomb, the WE.

RAF Air Vice Marshal Ron Dick, a former Vulcan pilot, said "it is [thus] questionable whether it could have been effective flying at low level in a war against After the British Polaris submarines became operational and Blue Steel was taken out of service in , the Vulcan continued to carry WE. With the eventual demise of the WE. Although in operational use the Vulcan typically carried various nuclear armaments, the type also had a secondary conventional role.

The Vulcan's only combat missions took place towards the end of the type's service in During the Falklands War , the Vulcan was deployed against Argentinian forces which had occupied the Falkland Islands. This conflict was the only occasion in which any of the V-bombers would participate in conventional warfare. Five Vulcans were selected to participate in the operation. In order to do so, each aircraft had to receive various last-minute adaptations; including modifications to the bomb bay, the reinstatement of the long out-of-use in-flight refuelling system, the installation of a new navigational system derived from the Vickers VC10 , and the updating of several onboard electronics.

Underneath the wings, new pylons were fitted to carry an ECM pod and Shrike anti-radar missiles at wing hardpoint locations; these hardpoints had originally been installed for the purpose of carrying the cancelled Skybolt nuclear missile. Engineering work to retrofit these Vulcans had begun on 9 April. On 1 May, the first mission was conducted by a single Vulcan XM that flew over Port Stanley and dropped its bombs on the airfield concentrating on the single runway, with one direct hit, making it unsuitable for fighter aircraft.

The Vulcan's mission was quickly followed up by strikes against anti-air installations, flown by British Aerospace Sea Harriers from nearby Royal Navy carriers. On 3 June , Vulcan B. En route, secret papers were dumped along with the two remaining AGM Shrike missiles, although one failed to launch. After a mayday call, the Vulcan, escorted by Brazilian Air Force Northrop F-5 fighters, was permitted an emergency landing at Rio with very little fuel left on board.

In November , as a result of the planned closure of the Victor SR. In peacetime, this could be followed up by visual identification and photography of targets of interest at low level. In wartime, a Vulcan would leave visual identification of potential targets to Buccaneers or Canberras, and could coordinate attacks by Buccaneers against hostile shipping.

The main external visual difference was the presence of a gloss paint finish, with a light grey undersurface, to protect against sea spray. The squadron also inherited its secondary role of air sampling from No.

After the end of the Falklands War in , the Vulcan B. While Vickers VC10 tanker conversions had been ordered in [] and Lockheed TriStar tankers would be ordered subsequent to the conflict, [] as a stopgap measure six Vulcans were converted into single point tankers.

The go-ahead for converting the six aircraft was given on 4 May After the disbandment of No. Initially displaying using XL, in that aircraft was sold, having been replaced by XH , which began displays in The VDF continued with XH until , finishing operations after the Ministry of Defence determined it was too costly to run in light of budget cuts.
