WWII British fighter
One of the greatest legends in aviation history is undoubtedly the British Supermarine Spitfire.

Designed at the Supermarine plant by the famous 1930s record-breaking seaplane designer, engineer Reginald Mitchell. A prototype with an index of 300, which made its first test flight on March 5, 1936, confirmed the expectations. He turned out to be very fast, maneuverable and easy to control.

In 1937, the production of the serial version of the Spitfire Mk.I began, armed with four 7.7 mm machine guns. To this end, new orders were placed at Castle Bromwith and a contract was signed for the production of 1,000 aircraft. By the end of October 1939, a total of 4,000 copies had been ordered. One aircraft of this type was also purchased by Poland for research and comparison, but the aircraft, launched in August 1939, never reached Poland.

Starting with the 175th instance, the Spitfires began to be fitted with highly efficient Rolls-Royce Merlin III engines and three-blade metal variable-pitch propellers. During production of the Spitfires, a front cockpit and a steel plate were introduced to protect the attack helicopter and the pilot's shoulders.
