    Did the Hawker Typhoon carry more internal fuel than the later Hawker Tempest?
    I think the Tempest had an additional 72 gallon fuselage tank, similar to the Spitfire.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Guys,

    Been a long time since I posted. Here are some pages from the manuals I have from the Typhoon and Tempest:


    1. Typhoon 1A/1B in 1941 from AP1804A Vol 1
      Typhoon 1A/1B in 1943 from AP1804A-PN
      Tempest V in 1944 from AP2458C-PN
      Tempest II in 1945 from AP2458B-PPN

    I hope these are of assistance.
