Vickers (Aviation) Limited

Vickers was one of the oldest engineering firms in Britain, dating back to 1828. It expanded into aircraft manufacture in 1811, merged with Armstrong Whitworth in 1927, and acquired Supermarine in 1928. However, Supermarine retained considerable autonomy and continued designing and manufacturing aircraft under its old name.

Aircraft manufactured under the Vickers name that saw service in the Pacific War included the Vildebeeste and Wellington.
