The Avro Lancaster was one of the RAF's main heavy bombers during WWII.
Among the many variants, the Mk.III "Dambuster" and Mk.I "Grand Slam
Bomber" were best known and the most famous. The 'Dambuster' was
modified to attack dams in Germany. It was equipped with special
bouncing bombs which would skip across the water to the dam wall and
explode below the surface of water to inflict structural damage. The
"Grand Slam Bomber" was designed to carry the 10-ton Grand Slam
earthquake bomb and its bomb bay doors and dorsal machine guns were
removed to reduce weight in order to do so. These Lancaster’s used the
Grand Slam on such important targets such as U-boat bases and rocket
