Roden ROD327 1/144 Scale Vickers Super VC10 Type K3 1163 Tanker Kit
Royal Air Force aerial refuelling aircraft, converted from the Vickers Super VC10 type 1164 passenger aircraft. Four such aircraft were rebuilt at the end of 1970, which in the next three decades took part in many well-known conflicts, among them the Falklands War, the first Iraq war (Desert Storm), the war in Afghanistan, the conflict in the former Yugoslavia and the second Iraq War (2003). Their last use was in 2011, when British forces supported the operation against the Gaddafi regime in Libya. In 2013, the type was withdrawn from Royal Air Force after more than 30 years of intensive military operation.
