The No 608 Squadron was the only one to be equipped with Bothas. By September 1940 they were withdrawn from frontline service.
Not One Torpedo
It is reported that the Botha never carried a torpedo while in frontline service.
Since the Botha wouldn't be used in its intended role, it was decided to use it for navigation and gunnery training.
In August 1943 the Botha was declared obsolete. A few planes were still used until 1944.
From May 1940 until July 1943 there were 169 aircraft destroyed in training accidents out of 473 used for training.
