The Hawker Typhoon was Great Britain's primary ground attack plane in the second half of World War II. Aproximately 3300 were built, although only one was tested by the Fleet Air Arm in 1939-1945.
Development on the Typhoon with modified wings containing a total of six cannon, with thinner wings of reduced area and lower profile drag aroused interest at the Air Ministry and eventually result in the Hawker Tempest.
