    RAF Lancs and the 12,000 HC Blockbuster

    Dear all

    Just a question about the 12,000 High Capacity bomb or blockbuster... the Lanc required bulged bomb bay doors to carry and drop them and only around 170 were used in anger in 1944-1945. Whilst Im aware 617 dropped them did any other squadrons use them on ops (as opposed to Tallboy which was also used by 9 Sqn - and Grand Slam which was 617 only)

    Anyone know?

    thanks in advance!
