The Fairey Swordfish covered itself in battle honours during the war, despite being outclassed by almost every enemy it encountered.
Arguably outdated already when it first entered service, the Fairey Swordfish nevertheless managed to cover itself in battle honours during the war, despite being outclassed by almost every enemy it encountered. In fact, some of the Royal Navy’s most celebrated victories have been due to this biplane. It was Swordfish launched from Illustrious that hammered the Italian fleet at Taranto, one of the first times a ship had been able to destroy another beyond visual range. It was also Swordfish, this time from the Ark Royal, who disabled the Bismarck, enabling it to be caught and sunk.
