    BA Nimrod

    BA Nimrod

    Description :

    The Nimrod is perhaps the most capable maritime reconnaissance platform in the world, and it served with great distinction in the Falkland Islands War with Argentina. The airframe is based on that of the de Havilland Comet airliner but with new engines and an enlarged lower fuselage containing a weapons bay. The most recent model is the MRA.4 equipped with much more capable radar, faster computers, and other avionics.
