Been flying the Spitty, absolute joy to fly, essentially 3 flavours,
Mk IXe LF (merlin 66)
Mk IXe LF clipped wing
Mk IXe HF (merlin 70)
Although you could make a Mk IXe HF clipped wing, the way modifications work, not sure that was ever actually a thing though. I know there was a fairly rare mod to add to the wing of the high altitude spits, which did the almost unachievable act of making a spit fugly, so taking some off of high altitude spits seems unlikely. Since its bank holiday and i'm feeling exceptionally lazy as i type, i can't be bothered to check in my copy of spitfire the history no more than six feet away....
The Gyro gunsight is a thing of beauty, and actually feels like cheating a bit, no wonder it was nicknamed the ace maker!
50's hit hard in this game to, so the 2 in the e wing are easily good enough to down fighters on there own if needs be.
