The Cold War conflict saw the creation of Britain's V Bomber Force, a defiant and mighty trio of aircraft formed as a NATO nuclear deterrent in the face of a possible Soviet attack.

The V Force consisted of the Handley Paige Victor, Vickers Valiant and the Avro Vulcan.

At the height of the Cold War in the late 50s and 60s, the Avro Vulcan was Britain's main contribution to the NATO strategic nuclear deterrent.

During this time the V Force crews were on 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year QRA (quick reaction alert). The Vulcan crew of five were capable of being airborne in around four minutes.

The crew consisted of two pilots, two navigators and an air electronics officer. These Vulcans were based at ten main V Force dispersal bases including RAF Waddington, RAF Coningsby and RAF Scampton.

In 1962 the RAF and USAF co-operated to ensure coverage of all the major Soviet Union sites, and two Vulcans at every major RAF base were armed and on permanent standby.
