The Spitfire Mk. XVI was first produced in September of 1944. Early "c" wing models boasted either four 20 mm cannons or four .303 machine guns and two 20 mm cannons. Later "e" wing models replaced the .303 machine guns with twin .50 machine guns. However, the biggest distinction of the Mk. XVI was the use of Packard Merlin® engines. 1,054 Mk. XVI Spitfires were produced in all - most featured clipped wings for improved rate of roll. Some later models also sported bubble canopies and cut fuselages.
