The Vickers Wellington saw service in the European theater, as a night bomber and later in South Asia and Africa. Later, in 1944, Wellington bombers were equipped with radar to help direct British Mosquito's, in an effort to attack, radar detected German He-111 bombers on their advancing raids. Today, this tactic, or technology, is still used. For example: America's AWAC's - which stands for - airborne warning and control system.
