Blenheim Mk. I Recon Plane is a Romanian Air unit in Steel Division II.

Background[]

Romania ordered 40 Bristol Blenheims in 1939. Only 37 entered service with three lost on the way. These were used in 4 long range reconnaissance squadrons who were used in providing information on Soviet Union, Hungarian and Bulgarian forces. In 1941 the 2nd Long Range Recon Squadron was disbanded with the Blenheims sent to the other squadrons. During the Operation Barbarossa these were one of the first Romanian aircraft to see combat.

In 1942 only 27 remained in service including three ex-Yugoslav aircraft bought from Germany. Only the first lone range reconnaissance squadron were still equipped with Blenheims. In 1943 remaining Blenheims were used in patrolling the Black sea.
