There were three types of V- bombers - Vulcan, Victor and Valiant
V-Bombers - all built for the RAF to a certain specification. The Valiant was "normal", the Vulcan had a delta wing and the Victor was more advanced.
Valiants had to be retired because of metal fatigue issues, Vulcans stayed in service as bombers and Victors were mainly refitted into tanker aircraft (although some Vulcans also were)
