Product description

This second volume covers the period when the Typhoon went from being a defensive fighter to being an offensive fighter-bomber. Along the way, trials were also conducted into its night fighting capability and its resilience to operating in the desert. Both trials are also covered in this book.

?The last quarter of 1943 also saw the introduction of the fourth distinct canopy style on the Typhoon. There was no change in mark number to signify this nor apparently, within the RAF, was there any official nomenclature to signify the variants. However, it was usually referred to as the sliding hood and from notes in pilots' logs it would seem that the term 'slider' was used to differentiate the new clear-vision hood from the awkwardly-named 'car-door' type. So 'slider' appears throughout this publication.
?

Once again, we've got a superb selection of high-res original wartime photos, some of them in colour, which really pull out even the finest details for the modeller.

As with all the books in this series, we've enhanced the photos to pull out the shadow detail and have added arrows and letters to identify points of interest.

?This book contains approx 120 original wartime/pre-war photos and 6 in-depth colour profiles
