Here's another version of the Canberra, not really an export  :))

XH132 was modified PR9 Canberra. However, she never flow in that role.

In the 1960's she was transferred to Short Brothers factory in Ireland and was modified as a specialised "Shorts SC.9" with the capability of carrying several different types of nose-mounted equipment for missile homing head trails.

Then on to De-Havilland Propellers where it spent a number of years as part of the Red Top guided missile trails programme.

She was then transferred to Hawker Siddeley Dynamics for a continuation of the trails before going on to the Radar Research Establishment (RRE) in 1972 for Sky Flash guided weapon homing-head development in 1972.

The nose section still exists today in Italy.
