Did Rhodesian Canberra's carry any external ordinance? I know they had a rocket rails under the nose but was curious about under the wings. And one more question, did the Hunters carry Golf or Fantan bombs?

Thanks for any reply's... Paul

I had a brief look at the photos in A Pride of Eagles and Canberra in Southern Africa Service books and did not see any photos of the Canberra with external stores.

Thanks Dean! I'm assuming there weren't any hard points. Internal load only. As for the Hunters, I'll have to do some more research on what their loadout would have been.

Just had a quick look myself and can see no evidence of external loads on the Canberra's. The Hunters did definitely carry Golf and Fantan bombs.

Just found someone who makes "Golf" & "Fantan" bombs 3D. May have to make a purchase!
Thanks for your interest!
