    at the time of BOB was the mk-1 spitfire equipped with the two speed propeller or a constant speed propeller?

    At last sinxe july 1940 all Spitfire an dHurricane serving in combat squadrons in the south-east of UK should have CSP AFAIK.

    CoD will have most propably two flyable Spifire Mk.I and Hurricane MkI.
    My personal guss ia that the main difference between them will be the propellersystem.
    I am also looking forward which propellersystem Maddox has choosen for the Bf109 & 110.

    There was a 3-speed prior to 1940 though I dunno if it was fitted to any Spitfires.

    de Havilland 2-pitch was replaced with the Rotol constant speed unit like Franky said around July.

    Im not sure if de havilland also made a CSP but I do know that the mkIs received them before the mkII went into service...

    so we should get a mkI with a CSP as well as a 2 pitch.

    I doubt that any front line squadrons (10,11,12 group) were still using the old de havilland propellor throughout the battle.

    They may have over Dunkirk or during the channel battles tho... I'm not sure on that.
