The British Spitfire is one of the most iconic fighter aircraft of World War II. Most famous for its role in the Battle of Britain, the Spitfire served as Britain’s primary fighter during the entirety of the war. The Spitfire combines graceful lines, eye-watering dogfight performance, and heavy firepower in its later variants. For DCS World, we are happy to bring you the most accurate and realistic simulation of the Spitfire LF Mk. IX ever created.
The Spitfire LF Mk. IX was originally developed as a stopgap measure as a response to the appearance of the Focke-Wulf FW 190A.
The Spitfire LF Mk. IX is powered by the Merlin 66. This engine produces its best performance at slightly lower altitudes than the older Merlin 61. Spitfires equipped with this engine were designated LF Mk. IX. This was the most numerous version of the Mk. IX, with 4,010 produced. The majority of Mk. IXs of all types used the standard ”c” wing, which would often carry two 20mm cannon and four .303in machine guns.
Note: To coincide with the Early Access release of the Spitfire, we are also releasing Update 3 to DCS World 1.5.5.
