The Spitfire was Britain’s premier fighter aircraft during World War II. More than 20,000 of this aircraft were built for the Royal Air Force (RAF) and those of the Commonwealth and Allies. The Spitfire appeared just in time to take part in the Battle of Britain, where its reputation as a war-winning thoroughbred greatly eclipsed the RAF’s more numerous Hurricanes. By 1941 the Spitfire became the main fighter aircraft used for air-to-air combat, with the Hurricane being mainly relegated to the ground attack role.

The Spitfire was designed by RJ Mitchell, an engineer for the Supermarine Aviation, to be a high speed interceptor fighter. Its characteristically thin, elliptical shaped wings, mated to the incredibly powerful Rolls-Royce V-12 Merlin engine, gave it an air-speed advantage over most of its contemporaries.

Deficiencies, such as weak armament and performance of the Merlin engine during negative G turns, led to rapid development of improved Spitfire designs. By 1942 the negative G performance was resolved in the Spitfire Mk V.  The “C” wing configuration housed four 20mm Hispano cannons. This greatly improved the Spitfire’s offensive punch. Brickmania’s Mk Vc Trop is based on this configuration, “Topicalised” with desert camouflage and a larger air filter used in high-dust environments.

Spitifire Mk Vc vitals:

  • Dimensions: Wingspan 36 ft 10 in (11.23 m), Length 29 ft 11 in (9.13 m), Height 11 ft 5 in (3.49 m)

New Release: T-34/76 Soviet Medium Tank

Order Yours Here

Developed in great secrecy, the T-34 was Russia’s answer to the growing military threat of Germany in the 1930s. Incorporating many new and innovative features, such as the Christie suspension system and sloping armor, its success was considered a gamble by the Communist Party bosses. While the Soviet Union already had a heavy tank series in production (KV series), the T-34 program was given the go ahead. Stalin’s rationale was that the designers could always be executed if the project failed. While not in full production when Hitler unleashed Operation Barbarossa against the Soviet Union, the appearance of the T-34 stunned the German High Command. Not only was the T-34 able to withstand almost anything the Germans could throw at it, but its 76mm gun could easily knock out both Panzer IIIs and IVs, then the heaviest tanks in the German arsenal.
