Title: Hawker Typhoon
The Hawker Typhoon first flew in 1940 and was intended to be a replacement for the Hawker Hurricane in the high-altitude interceptor role. Problems in development lead to delays and almost cancellation, but the aircraft secured a role initially as a low-level interceptor. In 1942 the aircraft was switched to a low-level attack role, as it’s powerful engine allowed the carriage of a heavy bomb-load. It became most famous when equipped with rocked launchers and was particularly effective against tactical targets such as tanks and trains. A total of 3,317 were built.
