Nuking the iceberg that sank the Titanic! Brilliant idea but the environmentalists would have gone crazy and caused an insurrection that would have kept Britain out of WW1!

Maybe, but a force of RFC TSR2's could have prevented the Germans advances in 1914 and saved milllions of lives in the trenches perhaps ?

I reckon what you need for your basic iceberg elimination what you need is a Blackburn Bucaneer .

As far as any nautical problem was concerned, the answer was almost ALWAYS a Buccaneer.

Rather like the Canberra for the RAF.  ;D
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)
