The Avro Lancaster B Mk.III was modified for special mission against the German dams during World War II. Twenty-three aircraft of this type were built to carry the "Upkeep" bouncing bomb for the dam busting raids. The bomb bay doors were removed and struts to carry the bomb were fitted in their place, with a hydraulic motor fitted to spin the bomb. Lamps were added to measure the required low-flying altitude at night. These changes helped to bring the Avro Lancaster B Mk.III in history as the "Dambuster".
Designed to be used with the popular air combat game system created by Andrea Angiolino and Pier Giorgio Paglia, each WW2 Wings of Glory® Special Pack is a ready-to-play large size model, painted and assembled, 100% compatible with any other WW2 Wings of Glory game product.
In each pack you will find all you need to play with the airplane: a special base with gaming stats, a variable altitude flying stand, and a specific deck of maneuver cards, as well as specific rules and components necessary to use the airplane.
Bonus contents in this pack include a double-sided paper game mat, rules, scenarios and accessories to simulate the attack against the Eder and Möhne dams.
