Just guessing the high tier British Multirole fighters not released:

                         tier VIII Hawker Sea Fury

                         tier IX   Hawker Sea Hawk

                         tier X    Hawker Hunter

 

this line features excellent mid-altitude performance and could carry strike weapons;

although they had relatively inferior engines, they feature better maneuverability and

and firepower as well as durability and boost time.

 

the heavily armored tier 10 Hawker Hunter, armed with 4 30mm ADEN cannons, is a

killing machine at mid altitude. Maneuverable, only slightly slower than Swift, and equipped

with the same AVON engine with 33-34KN thrust(over 40KN afterburner), it can tear up everything

trespassing 2000-4000m in less than one second. It could also carry bombs and 76mm rockets, and

is the most versatile of all.

Jellyfish did a proposition on the British tree awhile back:

Now if they would add those missing ones that would be great.

Since we have the venom and the Bristol 146 it makes no sense not to have the gloster F5 at tier 4 as it was designed for the same specification....the Hurricane then fits at tier 5 the Typhoon at tier 6 and Tempest at 7 and so on

​That's a sharp observation, with interesting implications:

 

II -- Hawker Fury (03/1931) -- design by Sydney Camm

III -- Gloster Gladiator (09/1934) -- design by Henry P. Folland

IV -- Gloster F.5/34 (12/1937) -- the last design of Henry P. Folland for Gloster

V -- Hawker Hurricane (10/1937) -- design by Sydney Camm

VI -- Hawker Typhoon (10/1939)

VII -- Hawker Tempest (09/1942)

VIII -- Hawker Sea Fury (09/1944+)

IX -- Hawker Sea Hawk (09/1947)

X -- Hawker Hunter (07/1951)

 

First flight dates are not chronological for the F.5/34 and Hurricane, however that is just one milestone in a long stretch of concurrent development -- it does not account for protracted development of old designs, or rushed development of new designs, for example.  The above would also assume that the Hawker Demon and Blackburn Skua lead to a different multirole path -- such as Fairey.

 

The UK tech tree project will see massive improvements in the coming weeks due to new sources.  One of the great challenges has been to find the narrative that substantiates prototype aircraft like the Type 133 and Type 146 over the other myriad of aircraft available.

It doesn't hurt that the Gloster fighter is beautiful....and with bit more horsepower would have been a competitive fighter
