Re: Planes - Lancasters, Vulcan and more (10 photos)

Correct, they were designed as nuclear bombers as part of the UK's deterrence force. Their only combat role was the Falklands mission when they were at the end of their service life. They couldn't have done it without the support of the Victors, another nuclear bomber design from the same era.

Remarkably the Vulcan was the brainchild of the same man who designed the Lancaster, Roy Chadwick, which he sketched out just five years after the first flight of the Lancaster.
