The Bristol Beaufighter was designed as a two-seat long-range fighter. To speed
up production many parts of the older Bristol Beaufort were used. The tail, landing
gear and wings of the Beaufort were transplanted to the Beaufighter and most units
were equipped with airborne radar located in the nose for night-fighting. The Mk. IF
was the initial production and fitted with four 20 mm cannons in the nose along with
six 7.7 mm machine guns in the wings. There were a total of 553 of the IF version
No. 25 Squadron spent the first 3 years of WWII flying defensive patrols using the
Bristol Blenheim which was proving to be too slow to intercept German bombers.
New designs and better engines brought about the much quicker Bristol
Beaufighter, replacing the Blenheim. No. 25 received their first Beaufighters in
October 1940 and operated them until January 1943 when the ultimate night
fighter, the de Havilland Mosquito began assuming the role. Beaufighter, serial
R2069 was the first Beaufighter Mk. IF delivered to No. 25 Squadron.
