The Defiant had only a rear gun turret - no forward-firing armament at all. Powered by the same Merlin engine as the Spitfire and Hurricane the Defiant did not enter service until late 1939. Early daylight engagements were successful as German pilots mistook the Defiants for Hurricanes and attacked from behind into a deadly concentration of fire. This success was short lived. First pic of a Defiant on a.net.
