Product Description
The spinning disk bomb is based on a proposal dating from August 1942 to develop a rotating bomb that could be used to attack enemy shipping or ground targets. The design offering the advantage over a conventional bomb of being able to hit tall targets when launched at level flight as opposed to a dive bomber, or as alternative to a torpedo for use in shallow water, attacking at very high speed as to not allow the target time to take evasive action.

The launch method was tested on the ground but there is no evidence of air launching trials. The disk could be made to spin by means of a small rocket turbine just before the attack. You will see on the rear of the casting there is a small amount of flashing that needs to be removed, leaving just the pipe section in place. Various sizes of disk where proposed, our set is suitable or single of twin engines fighter types in RAF service, one launcher fitted under each wing.

This set includes two disk bombs with underwing mounted launcher.
