    The Avro Canada CF-100 Canuck entered service in with the RCAF in 1952 and the Belgian Air Force in 1957.

    The Canuck was one of very few all-weather jet fighters in that era and so remained operational for a very long time.

    The early versions were armed with machine guns, but the Mk IV versions onwards had rocket pods on the wing-tips. Each pod contained 29 x 70mm rockets.

    Thank you Clave ... lovely series as always. For some considerable time after being replaced by Voodoo's, the Clunk served as a counter measures intruder in warfare exercises, IIRC, and with its enormous power to weight ratio (for the time) was secunded to Cape Canaveral as a vertical chase plane on early rocket shots.
