The SBC was a practical (but still tedious) solution to the armourer‚'s problems of bombing-up with small ordinance and their safe release. The pre-loaded container was winched into place in the bomb-bay along side larger ordinance. The SBC was capable of carrying a wide variety of weapons. It was produced in various sizes: the two-partition 160lb Hudson unit, the 3-partition 250lb unit commonly used in Blenheims and shown here, and a much larger unit used in the Lancaster.

I would like to see the Blenheim get the 4x.303mg belly gun pack so it could be used as a fighter.
