The first of a family of single-engined aircraft that would play an important part in the RAFs and Fleet Air Arms contributions to the Second World War. The Typhoon was designed as a high-speed interceptor fighter and replacement for its forebear, the Hurricane.
The Tempest was a development of the Typhoon. It was a more than capable ground-attack aircraft and defence fighter at medium altitudes. The final development of the line was the smaller and even faster Sea Fury, which had evolved from the Fury originally destined for the RAF.
This well-researched and readable book tells the full story of these important aircraft.
