WWII Aircraft of the Day - The Typhoon


The Typhoon - Britian
By Salem

The Typhoon became the foremost ground attack force of the Royal Air Force.  It was modified to carry heavier and heavier weapon loads, starting with two 112kg bombs and later carrying two 450kg bombs.
During sweeps across the English Channel, before D-Day, Typhoons destroyed around 150 railway locomotives a month.  However in 1944, in an air battle over Falaise in France, in one attack they destroyed at least 137 tanks.
