Designed after the end of WWII to help fill the gap left by returning Lend-Lease bombers, the Avro Shackleton found itself searching for an old ally during the Cold War. Assisting it in its task was a bewildering array of sensors that could pick up everything from radar signatures to diesel emissions. Once detected, the Shackleton could engage subs with 20mm cannons, bombs, depth charges, and even nuclear depth charges. After forty years of service, the Shackleton was withdrawn in 1991.
