Bristol Beaufighter




The Beaufighter was a British heavy long-range fighter used during WWII. Equipped with superior firepower and speed, it was highly successful in fights with the Germans. It was also used against the Japanese who named it the "whispering death" because of the speed at which it could suddenly strike, then turn for home.
