Airfix 1:72 Boulon Paul Defiant MK1 - Model Kit

The Boulton-Paul Defiant was the only 'turret fighter' to enter service
with the RAF. The Defiant used the philosophy that a fighter aircraft, armed
solely with a turret bristling with machine guns would be able to enter a bomber
stream causing havoc and the turret would also enable it to defend itself from
enemy fighters.

During its first few engagements during the Battle of Britain in 1940, enemy
pilots were taken by surprise and the Defiant fared well but soon the Luftwaffe
pilots worked out its weaknesses, especially the lack of forward firing guns and
the Defiant was soon relegated to night fighting duties were it fared
better.
