More info:

The Supermarine Spitfire MK.XIV was a British fighter aircraft that entered service in 1944. It was an improved version of the Spitfire MK.IX, with a more powerful Rolls-Royce Griffon engine and a redesigned wing. The Spitfire MK.XIV had a top speed of 448 mph (721 km/h) and could climb to 20,000 ft (6,096 m) in 6 minutes. It was armed with two 20 mm Hispano cannons and four 0.303 inch Browning machine guns.
The Spitfire MK.XIV was used in various roles, such as interceptor, fighter-bomber, reconnaissance and ground attack. It was especially effective against the German V-1 flying bombs, shooting down 300 of them. The Spitfire MK.XIV was also deployed in the Far East, where it faced the Japanese Zero and Ki-84 fighters. The Spitfire MK.XIV was one of the most successful variants of the Spitfire series, and remained in service until 1955.

  1. It was the Spifire Mk IV which first flew on the 27 November 1941 and not the Mk XIV. The latter would not appear for another two years.
