The Spitfire is the most famous and known single-seat fighter of World War II. He played a decisive role during the Battle of Britain and, in its various versions, has been gradually upgraded and evolved to be more effective on all fronts from Europe to the Far East war theaters. The Mk. Vc is one of the most famous and widespread early Merlin powered version. Came into production in the first half of 1941, it was characterized by the installation of the Rolls-Royce Merlin 45 V12 engine able of delivering 1,470 HP and by the adoption of the "type C" wing able to enhance its flying performances. Instead of the eight 7.7 mm Browning machine guns, the Spitfire Vc has often been configured with the 20mm. Hispano-Suiza cannons. The Spitfire Vc, specially modified with the adoption of the characteristic tropical filter, was widely used in North Africa Campaign.
