    Canadian Hawker Typhoon operating from a very wet former German airfield, February 1945. The famous ground attack fighter had almost no forward visibility .

    I don't understand what you mean by " The famous ground attack fighter had almost no forward visibility . " Please clarify.

    It was better than some, worse than others in that respect. Certainly nothing unusual for this generation of piston engine fighters.
