    The empty weight of the Mk V was 19,300lb. What was the weight empty of the Mk II, Mk III, Mk IV and Mk IVA?

    The Mk V, with a bomb load of 7,000lb, had a range of 756km. With a 3,000lb bomb load the range was 2,655km. What was the range of the Mk II, Mk III, Mk IV and Mk IVA?

    Thanks,

    Neil
