RCN 825 Sqd began flying anti-submarine missions in early 1946 with their new Martin AM-1 Maulers. Based on the HMS Habakku (pycrete carrier) they were an important part of clearing the U-boat threat from the North Atlantic and allowing the supply convoys to make their crossing with minimal losses for the first time during the war.

What a beast!  Also nice load out, looks like you have something to address almost any occasion :)

Beautiful result, Ed! That looks like a real brute of a plane. The asymmetric loadout looks great!
