Auto Credit Based on MisterT's Supermarine Spitfire MkVb

This example here is one that wouldve been used by Montgomery and his 8th army in North Africa. To learn the AGs check @MisterT’s original post link

In real life this plane would have been used as a strategic bomber able to get pinpoint accuracy a bit like the a 10 or the Stuka except originally it was designed as a fighter but was modified by engineers to be able to have a low stall speed or as used in the Battle of Britain it was used so
A:the pilot could see more ground
B:so it had a higher roll rate
C: it helped reduce take off accidents

    @Parehare its actually true british planes actually dive on there target but the spits were to fast and the clipped spits were perfect cus they need somthing fast and can bomb like a bomber and dive to get an accurate hit cus the germans had the "stuka" bomber.
