The Typhoon was a British single-seat fighter-bomber, produced by
Hawker Aircraft starting in 1941. Although it was intended to be a
replacement for the Hawker Hurricane in the interceptor role, the
Typhoon underwent a long gestation period, eventually evolving into
one of the Second World War's most successful ground-attack aircraft.
In RAF slang, the Typhoon was nicknamed the Tiffy.
The Hawker Typhoon became the epitome of ground-attack aircraft in
World War II. During the invasion of Europe it was used to great
effect as the Allied troops advanced from the English Channel to
Berlin. This is a collection of first-hand accounts from operational
pilots of the Hawker Typhoon.
