Avro Vulcan. Part of the V-Force, the Vulcan was Britain's airborne nuclear deterrent during much of the Cold War. Although typically armed with nuclear weapons, it was capable of conventional bombing missions, a capability utilised in Operation Black Buck during the Falklands War between the United Kingdom and Argentina in 1982.
