A Legend. An Icon. A Masterpiece.

The British Supermarine Spitfire Mk IXc needs little introduction; claiming a place in history as one of the most revered, feared and beloved fighters of WWII. Designed as a short-range, high-performance Interceptor, the Spitfire was infamous for its ability to counter the German Luftwaffe with incredible success.

The Mk IX was the most highly-produced and iconic version of the Spitfire, powered by a 1720hp Merlin 66 engine, featuring a 2-stage supercharger, an elliptical wing design and a powerful weapons armament, the Spitfire remains one of the most beautiful & iconic aircraft of all time.

Our simulation of the Spitfire Mk IX comes with 4 variants:

  1. Spitfire LF Mk IX (Merlin 66)
  2. Spitfire LF Mk IX with clipped wings (Merlin 66)
  3. Spitfire HF Mk IX (Merlin 70)
  4. Spitfire HF Mk IX with clipped wings (Merlin 70)
