V-Bomber origins: B.35/46 / Sperrin
B.14/46, to provide a very conservative bomber design as "insurance" in case the advanced B.35/46
top-and-bottom fashion. Improvements in aeronautical design and engineering had passed the Sperrin bybefore it ever flew. Although a second prototype was built and flown, further development of the typewas abandoned. The Sperrin was never anything more than a footnote to Britain's strategic bomber
development effort. Other work would achieve much more significant and impressive results.
