The Short Stirling

was the first heavy bomber used during the Second World War by the British Royal

Air Force. Although it was built around a robust metal airframe and it was able

to carry a good offensive load, the Stirling was gradually replaced in RAF

Bomber Squadron with the more advanced Halifax and Lancaster. Thanks to its 4

powerful 1,635 hp Bristol Hercules engines, it was able to perform other

important duties  in airborne operations : dropping paratroopers and towing

gliders. The Stirling Mk IV version was adapted to optimize the towing of

gliders, such as Horsa and Hamilcar, with the elimination of nose and dorsal

turrets  and the introduction of mechanisms to release gliders. The Stirlings Mk

IV were used in the Battle of Normandy  and Operation Market Garden.
