Product Description

Initially designed to replace the Hawker Hurricane as the complimentary high-altitude fighter to the Supermarine Spitfire, the Typhoon instead found its fame as a low altitude ground-attack aircraft, spearheading the airbourne assault through occupied Europe after D-Day. Designed around the enormous 24 cylinder Napier Sabre engine, the Typhoon has a tough gestation before maturing as a capable, low level fighter bomber, devistating German armour in Normandy and beyond.

The 2nd Tactical Air Force was formed in 1943 to support the ground forces in the coming invasion of Europe. Following the D-Day landings units relocated from the United Kingdom to the Continent. The Hawker Typhoon fighter bomber was a mainstay of the close support squadrons in the campaign in North Western Europe. It was a heavy hitting, versatile aircraft capable of carrying both bombs and rockets.  Drop tanks and bombs were not carried at the same time, although rockets and tanks could be if the rockets were limited to the two outboard mounts.

The decal options cover aircraft from 439 (Canadian) SQN & 183 SQN RAF and the personal aircraft of Wing Commander R.T.P. Davidson, CO of 143 Wing, Royal Canadian Air Force.

  • Three blade propellor
