BAC TSR-2

The British Aircraft Corporation TSR-2 was a cancelled Cold War strike and reconnaissance aircraft developed RAF in the late 1950s and early 1960s. It was designed to penetrate a well-defended forward battle area at low altitudes and very high speeds, and then attack high-value targets in the rear with nuclear or conventional weapons. Some of the most advanced aviation technology of the period was incorporated in order to make it the highest-performing aircraft in the world.

The TSR-2 was a strike and reconnaissance aircraft developed by the British Aircraft Corporation for the RAF in the late 1950s and early 1960s. 23 were built (including 2 static/fatigue test airframes, not all were completed, only 1 flew). Only two incomplete examples survived the hasty destruction that followed the politically motivated project cancellation.
