Hawker Tempest F.6 ‘Middle East Operations’

The Hawker Tempest Mk.VI was the RAF’s piston-engined fighter, which evolved as a Mk.V development with a more powerful Sabre V engine. Its prototype first flew in May 1944, while the first aircraft were available in July ?é? August 1945.

As with other Tempests, Mk.VI orders were reduced when the war ended. Of 300 plus aircraft only 142 were actually built. They were delivered to five RAF squadrons in the Middle East in 1946/47 ?é? Nos.247 and 6 Squadrons being the first, followed by Nos. 213, 8 and 39.
The Tempest Mk.VI was a single-seat monoplane aircraft, of all metal construction, powered by a Napier Sabre V or VA engine. DH or Rotol four-bladed propellers were used. It featured a bubble canopy and a retractable undercarriage. Compared to the Mk.V it had carburettor air intakes repositioned to the wing roots, oil cooler placed behind the the coolant radiator and additional oil coolant radiator installed in the starboard wing. It was fitted with four 20mm Hispano cannons in the wings and it could carry 45-gal or 90-gal drop tanks. The Tempest could also perform as a fighter-bomber, carrying a wide variety of bombs up to 1000 lbs.

The Tempest Mk.VIs (re-designated F Mk.6 in mid-1947) were involved in such delicate actions in the ME region, such as Canal Zone defence, the British Palestine handover, Israeli-Egyptian hostilities and unrests in Iraq and Eritrea. By March 1950 all the units gave up their Tempests.

The B-52 Stratofortress is the most famous long-range jet-powered strategic bomber in the aviation history. Produced by the American company Boeing since 1955 it has been, for a long time, a symbol of the Cold War. It has been, for several years, the backbone of the United States Air Force Strategic Air Command. The B-52 has been produced in a significant number of versions that has gradually evolved the successful project to better answer to the changing in operational needs. The “G” version is the most produced B-52 variant, and it has been delivered to the S.A.C. wings from the early 60s. It could be armed with the North American AGM-28 Hound Dog stand-off air-to-surface nuclear missile that was part of the US nuclear arsenal until the mid-1970s. It was developed in the middle of the “Cold War” to carry out nuclear attacks on high priority land targets such as air and missile bases
