Introduction

メカジキの名を持つ紅茶の国の名機「Swordfish」、その後継「Albacore」のさらなる後継機として開発されたオニカマスの名を持つ新型雷撃機を改良した対潜哨戒機バージョンです。
本機はUボートを制圧するため対潜兵装を装備、戦後にはASWレーダーを搭載、対潜哨戒機として近代化されていきます。
装備改修により英国艦艇での運用性がより向上します。

This aircraft is equipped with ASW equipment to suppress U-boats. After the war, it had an ASW RADAR installed as part of an upgrade to be an ASW patrol aircraft.
Its performance will increase when equipped on British ships.
