    I know that the posts are not supposed to be short but I just have one question:

    Did the coastal command variant of the Beaufighter ever carry rockets and machine guns in the wings?
    I thought that it did but i read in an article that it could only use guns or the rockets/bombs fittted, and not both due to weight, is this true?

    Any good pictures of coastal command beaufighters would be appreciated

    Thank you

    The machine guns were removed to accommodate extra fuel tanks. As for pictures

    Thanks for the picture, and i just got my answer of the site I just visited it said that they could take them out for extra fuel or remove them for the rockets.
