Description

It looks like an antiquated design, and you’d be right. Yet somehow, it manages to remain in service while newer bombers come and go. The ‘Fetch’ is a highly adaptable strategic bomber with variants designed for Maritime Patrol, Airborne Early Warning, Anti-Submarine Warfare, and even Civillian Airliners. Its powerful contra-rotating turboprops make it one of the fastest propeller aircraft ever, and one of the loudest.

It’s got two wings and flies, is there anything else you need?
