The legendary Spitfire was the representative British fighter of WWII and many served with various air forces well into the 1950s. Among these was the Mk.IX, a variant powered by the Rolls-Royce Merlin 60 series engine which was developed to counter the Luftwaffe's Fw 190. Most of the Mk.IX aircraft came equipped with the C wing, two 20mm cannons, and four 7.7mm machine guns. The Mk.IXc, which was issued to units in July 1942, featured a top speed of 669.46 km/h and had superior maneuverability. The Mk.IXc not only helped the RAF regain air superiority over the English Channel, but it was also the second most produced Spitfire variant with 5,500 built. They were the RAF's main fighter for the latter half of the war.
