This new Spitfire Mk V package includes four Mk V variants in 13 authentic paint schemes, featuring incredibly detailed cockpits, exacting flight dynamics and realistic Merlin engine sounds: * Mk Va (2) * Mk Vb (4) * Mk Vb tropical (3) * Mk Vc clipped wing (4) Many consider the Spitfire Mk V the ultimate Spitfire, with its new 'Merlin 45' engine delivering a combat-rated 1470 hp, much improved performance compared to previous variants, and service in tropical climates, desert campaigns in Africa and the tropical conditions of the Pacific Theatre. The Mk V was the most numerous Spitfire variant, and by the end of production a total of 6,487 had been built or converted from Mk 1 standard. The Mk V could carry bombs, be fitted with a 'slipper tank'" to extend its range, and turned into a tropical version with the addition of the ungainly Vokes sand filter housing.
