    Aeroplane Heaven - Hawker Typhoon Mk1B

    In 1938, the British Air Ministry issued Specification F.18/37 which was for a fighter, to be capable of at least 400 mph at 15,000 ft with an engine equipped with a two-speed supercharger. At Hawker, Sydney Camm, designer of the legendary Hurricane fighter, laid out designs for a successor to the Hurricane even before that masterpiece was to distinguish itself in the Battle of Britain. Designed to be built with traditional Hawker construction methods, the Typhoon was powered with the new Napier Sabre engine, an "H" pattern 24 cylinder monster producing 2,200 hp initially, rising to a whopping 3,500hp in later models.

    Flight dynamics are highly realistic and provide a challenge for the virtual pilot. The "Tiffy" was not a very easy aeroplane to fly, especially at slow speeds. This is reflected in the flight dynamics. A more benign set of flight dynamics files are provided as an option for those wishing a more relaxed experience.

    Fully engineered sound package includes the cartridge start effect and the characteristic supercharger whine.
