l give you the Westland Whirlwind!

 

It was a ground breaking twin engine fighter that served thru to 1943. lt would make a fantastic premium....

 

link to info     https://www.military...aircraft_id=524

 

l seem to not be able to post a picture maybe someone more savvy in the ways of this forum can help?

Westland has one wooden mockup plane in WoWP's tech tree...so it wouldn't be suprising it would eventually arrive...yes, eventually.

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

It's the slim version of the hornet! :teethhappy:

I don't think I've seen that plane before. Not even in documentaries that I've watched on TV. Might look this one up soon. Thanks, dude!
I have several fragile shirts. They get ripped a lot. Not sure why.

That's the Westland Whirlwind that was built on the same meta as the Me110 but sucked.  It wasn't powered well, couldn't turn, and after the 110 was shown to be a liability the WW was used as a GA a sortie or two before being put away.  There was another version called the Welkin designed to intercept high altitude bombers which was never needed by the time it was ready.

I do like Westland P1056, it has a pig nose and is so lovely!
