FM300 was the only Lincoln B.Mk. XV ever purchased by the RCAF, although a single Aircraft each of the Mk.
I and Mk.II also served with the RCAF for short periods. The XV was only on strength from 17 August,
1946 to 4 March, 1947 and was originally intended to be an enlarged version of the Lancaster X
equipping heavy bomber squadrons in the Pacific war. As a development of the Lancaster, the Lincoln
boasted a new nose section, a stretched rear centre section of the fuselage, slightly enlarged rudders
with larger trim tabs, a new and larger outer wing together with the more powerful Merlin 68 engines
in new Nacelles of cylindrical cross section.
