Designed by Roy Chadwick, the Avro Lancaster had its roots in the Manchester which since its inception, was plagued by instability and problems with its complex Vulture engines. Even before the Manchester flew, Chadwick realized that it had serious problems and made plans for its modification. Adding 12ft to the wingspan and replacing the Vulture engines with the Merlin V-12`s, the resulting Lancaster made its maiden flight in January 1941.The system proved quite capable from the outset and was put into production the same year that the prototype had flown. Production went at such a dizzying pace that the aircraft production lines were outpacing the engine lines. As such the American company of Packard jumped in to pick up the production slack, developing the same Merlin engines for shipment back to England. As further insurance, the Bristol company was in line with its own Hercules VI and XVI engines capable of 1,735 horsepower.
The Bomb Bay was a continuous uninterrupted space which stretched for 33 feet. For this reason the Lanc was versatile enough to undertake raids with large specialized weapons but meant that the wing spar was an obstacle to crew movement. The "Grand Slam", a 22,000lb bomb designed tp penetrate concrete and explode beneath ground could only be delivered by a Lancaster, so large in fact that the bomb bay doors of Lancasters would be removed to accommodate the weapon. Grand Slam-carrying Lancasters would be put to good use against the Bielefeld Viaduct in 1945, causing a great amount of damage in the process, thus it was first choice for special operations as the sinking of the Turpitz and the Dambusters raid.
In its wake, the Lancaster outshone all of its heavy bomber contemporaries including the well-received Boeing B-17 Flying Fortresses and Consolidated B-24 Liberators, and would be a considerable reason that the Allies were able to supply such good results in their daytime / night-time bombing raids over the German-held territories.
