Vickers Vincent

The Vincent was a three-seat general-purpose version of the Vildebeest, designed essentially for tropical service in the Middle East and therefore carrying comprehensive equipment. Fitted with a 484kW Bristol Pegasus IIM3 engine, it (like the Vildebeest) had sufficient fuel as standard for a 1000km flight while cruising at 195km/h; this range could be increased to 2000km by the use of an auxiliary fuel tank attached in the position normally occupied by the torpedo. A number of Vildebeests were converted into Vincents and, with new production aircraft, the RAF operated just under 200 from 1934. The last were withdrawn in 1941.
