One of the fastest fighters of World War 2.
The Hawker Tempest was the natural evolution of the Typhoon, with a redesigned low-drag high-speed wing, stronger tail section and a more powerful Napier Sabre engine.
The result was an extremely fast airplane and with an unexpected good maneuverability that is often shadowed by its brother-in-arms, the Supermarine Spitfire.
The Blueprints series is aimed at WW2 and aircraft enthusiasts who want to show their love for their favorite flying machines.
I hope you enjoy it.
