    The Typhoon IB, known as the “Tiffy”, distinguished itself in the Battle of Normandy destroying 137 tanks and opening the way for the liberation of France and Belgium. No. 56 and 609 squadrons based at Duxford received their first Typhoons in 1941. In 1942 No. 609 squadron moved to Manston and surpassed the Spitfires at intercepting Fw 190s. Typhoons destroyed the first two Me 210s over the British Isles. Maximum speed of 417 MPH at 20,000 feet was obtained in 7.6 minutes. Its true element was with eight 3” rockets and four 20mm cannons.
