One of the RAF's most successful and widely used twin engined fighter types, the Bristol Beaufightcr borrowed a number of design features from its torpedo bomber forerunner, the Bristol Beaufort. Both aircraft were innovative and leaders in their particular class. The Beaufort was the first modern torpedo bomber and the Beaufightcr the first combat-worthy twin-engined fighter to enter RAF service and as such they both found a rightful place in the Royal Air Force "hall of fame."
