WW2 Hawker Typhoon fighter/bomber circa 1940 by 


A digital painting, using WHistler’s Rainbow in DAP, of the Hawker Typhoon which was a British single-seat fighter-bomber, produced by Hawker Aircraft. A black and white PD image was used for the digital painting.
In 1941 the Luftwaffe brought the formidable Focke-Wulf Fw 190 into service: the Typhoon was the only fighter in the RAF inventory capable of catching the Fw 190 at low altitudes and, as a result, secured a new role as a low-altitude interceptor. Through the support of pilots such as Roland Beamont the Typhoon also established itself in roles such as night-time intruder and a long-range fighter. From late 1942 the Typhoon was equipped with bombs; from late 1943 ground attack rockets were added to the Typhoon’s armoury. Using these two weapons, the Typhoon became one of the Second World War’s most successful ground-attack aircraft.

    Good one Dennis. Always liked the Typhoon. One of my instructors flew them in W.W.II said they were a bit of a handful but excellent gun platform. – Ted

  • Thank you Ted – it certainly looks a bit of a beast :)
    I’ve been reading up on it’s history and it seems as if it did a very good job during WW2.
