Yeah...the very first Typhoons had 12 .303 guns just like a version of the Hurricanes did.

Try the Hurricane Mark IIB. Same armament configuration.

The Typhoon IA Early was fitted with the 12 .303's to speed its entry into service. The cannons were already being developed and considered to be the future but they weren't ready yet. There weren't many of the IA's...the IB's with Hispano 20mm and some other improvements were out fairly quickly.

HMM now when i count them its 12, and in the view object its says 8... strange. and an other thing its says its inferior to other fighters, yet it is the legend that killed more then any other WEAPON in Battle of britain
