FS2004 Fairey Gannet Mk4. This skin is based on the Mk4 version of the German Navy, Marinefliegergeschwader 3 in Nordholz. The Gannet was originally designed as an anti-submarine aircraft. In this role the maiden flight of the Gannet was on the 19th of September 1949. It entered service with 703X flight in April 1953. The Gannet was the first aircraft to use a double Mamba turbine engine in a single engine configuration, each unit powering a set of contra-rotating propellers. It was also the first turbopropeller aircraft to land on an aircraft carrier. Model and texture template by Kazunori Ito, repaint by Andreas Fey.
