      The most numerous version of the Seafire (1,220 Mk.IIIs built), the Seafire III was supplied with Double-folding wings, and was powered by a 1,585-hp Merlin 55M engine. Withdrawn from front-line service after the Korean War, the Seafire would nevertheless continue in service with Reserve and Training units until 1957.
