The Supermarine Spitfire fighter can be considered, without a doubt, one of the most famous aircraft in the history of aviation and an icon of British aeronautical production. A single-engined low-wing aircraft, equipped with good offensive armament, it constituted, in the first versions, together with the Hawker Hurricane the backbone of the Royal Air Force fighter units during the Battle of Britain against the German Luftwaffe. The victory in the Battle of Britain helped to ensure a strong prestige for the Spitfire. It was characterized by its harmonious design, the elliptical wing and the powerful Rolls-Royce Merlin engine. During the war, to respond to the technological innovations of the opponents that led to the development of the formidable Focke-Wulf Fw 190, the Spitfire was constantly evolved in aerodynamic configuration and engines. The Spitfire Mk IX then went into production which, thanks to its performance, was able to compete on equal terms against the most modern German fighters.
