A small correction, Leyte wasn't redesignated CVS-32 until 1953. In 1950 it would have still been CV-32 (It was designated as such until 1952, when it was briefly CVA-32). Looks good, though.

Short Stiling Mk.II

Before WWII, Britain had started setting up shadow factories in Canada, to produce aircraft beyond the range of a future European war and succesful plants had been setup producing Hurricanes, Hampdens and other types. With the destruction of the Supermarine 316/317/318 programme and the serious damage to the Stirling production, this programme was vindicated early in the Battle of Britain.

[ img ]

Initial Stirling production was also slowed by engine availability, as the Bristol Hercules engines were prioritised for Beaufighters, and so an alternate engine was considered for the Stirling - the US Wright R-2600. Three Mk.I aircraft were modified with the American engines in 1941, to become the prototypes of the new Mk.II. Production was to be undertaken in Canada as well as the UK, and a contract was placed for 140 Canadian built aircraft. The only other major change to the Mk.I was the addition of a matched pair of Boulton Paul dorsal and ventral turrets, with the dorsal being the new Type H, and the ventral being the new Type O cannon turrets. While this new turret set was trialed at scale on the S.31 mini-Stirling they were eventually dropped and never fitted operationally.
The Wright engines provided no advantage for the Mk.II, and the engine supply issue was resolved. Meanwhile Avro had developed the Lancaster, and this new bomber design was considered a better choice for Canadian construction. And so the Stirling Mk.II was cancelled.

Private owned Chimpunk, Re. LV-NRY. The NRY was the oldest flying DHC-1, sadly it hit an antenna during an airshow last year, the aircraft managed to land safely with no fatalities, but is unknown if it will ever fly again.

Short Stirling Mk.III

In 1942 the Stirling was fitted with engines with an additional 10% more horsepower to become the Mk.III.

[ img ]

The new Hercules VI engines required new air inkaes and modified oil coolers, and so the cowlings are immediately recognisable from the earlier marques. Additionally the cabin windowws were reduced in number, and aircraft were now fitted with dorsal turrets of a significantly more aerodynamic design.
By mid-1943 the losses of Stirlings in action was become more apparent, 10-15% per raid, and Stirlings started to be used for roles other than frontline bombing. Stirlings became electronics warfare aircraft, dropping "window" and some fitted with the Mandrel radar jamming transmitters.
Stirlings were also fitted with the new H2S radar units, using the location of the early model ventral turrets.
