The Avro Lancaster was a four-engined heavy bomber manufactured initially by Avro for the Royal Air Force (RAF). It first saw active service in 1942, and was one of the main heavy bombers of the RAF and squadrons from other Commonwealth countries. Although the Lancaster was primarily a night bomber, it excelled in many other roles including daylight precision bombing, and gained worldwide renown as the "Dambuster" used in raids on Germany's Ruhr Valley dams.
