Metal miniature replica of the Supermarine Spitfire airplane.
The Supermarine Spitfire was a British single-seater fighter used by the Royal Air Force (RAF) and many other Allied countries during World War II. The Spitfire continued to be used until the 1950s, both as first-line hunting and secondary functions. It was produced in greater numbers than any other British aircraft and was the only Allied fighter in production throughout the war.
The Spitfire was designed by R. J. Mitchell, chief designer of Supermarine Aviation Works (a subsidiary of Vickers-Armstrongs since 1928), as a high-performance, short-range interceptor. Mitchell continued to refine the design until he died of cancer in 1937, whereby his colleague Joseph Smith became chief designer. The elliptical wing of the Spitfire had a thin cross section that allowed it to reach a higher top speed than the Hawker Hurricane and several contemporary fighters. Speed ​​was seen as an essential quality to carry out the national defense mission against enemy bombers.
During the battle of England there was a public perception that the Spitfire was the RAF fighter in battle, when in fact the most numerous Hawker Hurricane was the one who had assumed a greater proportion of the combat load against the German Luftwaffe
After the battle of England, the Spitfire became the backbone of the RAF Game Command and participated in the European, Pacific and Southeast Asian theaters. Very dear to its pilots, the Spitfire served in several functions: interceptor, photorecognition, fighter bomber, on-board hunting and trainer. It was built in many different variants, using several wing configurations. Although the original structure was designed to be powered by the 1030 HP (768 kW) Rolls-Royce Merlin engine, it was adaptable enough to subsequently use significantly more powerful Merlin engines and also the subsequent Rolls-Royce Griffon engines; the latter was able to provide a power of 2035 HP (1520 kW).
