Armstrong Whitworth Whitley in The War That Came EarlyEdit

The Whitley was used by the RAF to bomb German cities and airfields. The Whitley's carried more bombs than any other British bomber, and could take a lot of punishment. Hans Rudel pitied the men who had to fly them because of their terribly slow speed. He would never want to fly one himself, especially during the day time.
