    X-Plane 11.30+ Vickers Valiant 2.0. This is a re-post of Daniel Grimes original model, updated (with permission) for X-Plane 11. Daniel's original description is as follows: The Valiant was the first V bomber in service; and the first out of service! It was designed as a low-tech stop gap until the more risky Vulcan and Victor were brought into service. The Valiant didn't have the aesthetic beauty of its Vulcan and Victor stable-mates, so it's the lesser known V-bomber. It was also hastily withdrawn after 10 years operational service because of fatigue problems that became evident when the role was switched from high to low altitude (as the Vulcan and Victor took on the high altitude role) - the main wing spar failed whilst a Valiant was in flight, but it got back to base. The Valiant saw operational service against Egypt in 1956. The zip file contains 3 Valiants: Type 660 Prototype - less powerful engines and a bit lighter than the production model - finished in bare metal, Type 673 Valiant B2 Pathfinder, and lastly Type 706 Valiant B1. Details of each type are contained in the included documentation. My thanks again to Daniel for allowing this model to be updated. By Ray Hill.
