During the WWII TYPHOON was mainly used as the tank buster, battlefield target destroyer and road hunter. The star points of combat score were taken in Normandie. Hard and lucky Typhoon's salvoes hit the staff car of Ervin Rommel and olb desert fox was badly injured.

At last, 16.04.45 air wunderwaffe Me262 jet was crashed down in dogfight.
