The Blackburn Buccaneer was a British carrier-capable attack aircraft designed in the 1950s for the Royal Navy. It was originally intended to carry nuclear weapons to strike Soviet cruisers at low altitudes, but later adapted to carry conventional weapons and anti-ship missiles. The Buccaneer was a robust and reliable aircraft, with a distinctive tail-mounted empennage and a rotating bomb bay. It was powered by two turbojet engines, initially the de Havilland Gyron Junior, and later the more powerful Rolls-Royce Spey. The Buccaneer entered service with the Royal Navy in 1962, and was also operated by the Royal Air Force and the South African Air Force. It saw combat action in the Gulf War of 1991 and the South African Border War. The last Buccaneers were retired in 1994, after more than 30 years of service.
