The real Typhoon - unlike the Eurofighter aircraft of the same name, you won't find any silly computers or plastic here! Affectionately known as the "Tiffy", the 3,300 airframes played a crucial role in WW2. The first two Messerschmitt Me 210 fighter bombers to be destroyed over the British Isles fell to the guns of Typhoons, and during a daylight raid by the Luftwaffe on London, on January 20, 1943, five Fw 190s were destroyed by Tiffys.
