Supermarine Attacker






Last updated on: June 6, 2017

The Attacker was one of the first jets produced for the Royal Navy, though it ended up being a failure due to technological shortcomings. A total of 185 were built. A batch was transferred to the Pakistani Air Force, where it served for a few years longer.

This is a work in progress and any help would be appreciated. Information on these planes is rather difficult to locate online and this work will remain incomplete unless you the readers offer to help me. Please feel free to pass along any information that you might have.

At the end of this page is a list of people who have graciously offered their help. Thank you all very much!
