Spitfire Mk.IX Variant?


Recommended Posts

It's been announced that the Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IX is under development, but I can't find any information on what variant will be in game. The main three were the F, HF, and LF. The HF used a high-altitude Merlin 70 engine, usually had less armor, and was used as a bomber interceptor and patrol plane over Great Britain. It was optimized for best performance >20,000ft. The F used a Merlin 63 engine and was optimized for best performance between 12,000ft and 20,000ft, and was used as a general purpose air superiority fighter. The LF used a Merlin 66 engine and was optimized for best performance under 15,000ft and was used as a counter to low-altitude Fw.190 attacks and often as a ground attack aircraft to supplement the Typhoon and Tempest. The planes had the same airframe and guns, but very different engines, slightly differing armor, and the LF had optional mounting equipment for bombs and rockets. I'd appreciate knowing which one will be in the game. Thanks!

Screens posted so far show they're using MH434 as their pattern plane, at least for the visual part. Not sure about planned engine variant / boost rating though.

i7 9700K @ stock speed, single GTX1070, 32 gigs of RAM, TH Warthog, MFG Crosswind, Win10.
