The prototype of the Spitfire, designated Supermarine Type 300, took to the air for the first time on 5th March, 1936. The fighter was designed with a maximum accent on the aerodynamic cleanliness - its Chief designer, Mr. Reginald Joseph Mitchell utilised the experience gained during the design and development of the racing seaplanes. The fact that the experience paid its dividend has been proven by altogether 24 versions produced and with a total of 22 000 machines manufactured within following thirteen years...

Mk IX

In the early months of 1942, with the clear superiority of the Focke Wulf Fw 190 over the Spitfire VB, there was much pressure to get Spitfires into production using the new two-stage supercharged Merlin 61 engine. In September 1941 the Spitfire Mk III prototype N3297 had been converted by Rolls-Royce at their Hucknall plant to take a Merlin 60, which had been specifically designed for use in the Wellington Mk VI high altitude bomber.

The performance increase was described by Jeffrey Quill as a „quantum leap“ over that of the Mk VB and another Spitfire airframe, R6700 was modified to take the new engine. Although design work on the Mk VII and VIII series was under way, these would take over a year to get into production and a counter to the Fw 190 was urgently needed.
