The first RAF fighter capable of exceeding a speed of 400 mph (644 km/h) was the Hawker Typhoon, which entered squadron service with No. 56 at Duxford in September 1941. Armed with four 20 mm cannon, and able to carry two 1000 lb bombs or eight 60 lb rocket-projectiles beneath its wings, the Typhoon became famous for 'train-busting' activities and devastated German Panzer divisions at Caen and the Falaise gap after the Allied invasion of Europe.
