with the 1946 planes being added to the game, is there any chance we could see any post war spitfires like mk 21, 22, or 24.

thx

Either Mk XIV or a MK XVI. Can't make out the nose bulges for the engine.

It's a Spitfire LF.XVIe, basically a Spitfire IX with a cutted down back, Packard Merlin 266 engine and a "e" type wing (2x20mm cannons + 2x12.7 mgs).

Well, to me this spit looks like it has the bulges for the griffon engine - very hard to see and not sure though!

I think clipping the Spits wings ruined the looks of it.

Many Spits had clipped wings. It made them lose climb abilities, in exchange for roll rate improvements. There were many Mk.V clipped this way in Africa.
