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.
