This model includes 'Hawker Siddeley Aviation' built Buccaneer aircraft, with examples of both ex-Royal Navy 'Fleet Air Arm' and RAF 'New-build' airframes that served with Royal Air Force squadrons based in the UK and Germany - including subtle differences in their airframe construction and subsequent airframe modifications.

The Buccaneer S.Mk.2B version was capable of a multitude of attack roles over land and sea. A variety of offensive armaments are included in this model such as: 'Martel' Target acquisition pod, Anti-Ship & Anti-Radar missiles, 'Paveway' Laser-guided bomb, Rocket launchers and H.E. bombs. For self defence: AIM-9B 'Sidewinder' missile and ECM pod.

Markings for the five main RAF squadrons that operated the Buccaneer S.Mk.2B are included (12, XV, 16, 208 & 237 OCU), as well as examples of five different disruptive camouflage patterns - RAF, RAFG and experimental designs.
