The British Martin-Baker MB-5 was a late World War II British Fighter Plane that – despite it's overall excellent performance, never saw active service. Owing to the change in the tide of The War, and several predictable accidents, The MB-5 Program was canceled with just (1) prototype being produced. Flown by a single Pilot, The MB-5 was 40-feet long with a wingspan of 35-feet. Power was provided by a Single Rolls-Royce Griffon V-12 Engine, which produced 2,035-HP. Airspeed was rated to 460-mph. It's operational ceiling was 40,000-feet with a mission range of 1,100-miles. Not conceived as a ''Bomber'', The MB-5 carried (4) 20mm Wing Guns.
