    The gross weights of the 3 types were:

    Mk I - 21,000lb
    Mk IA - 28,000lb
    Mk IC - 30,000lb

    I know that the empty weight of the Mk IC was 18,800lb. What was the empty weight of the Mk I and Mk IA?

    All 3 versions had 2 x 815 hp Pegasus XVIII engines which gave the Mk IC a max. speed of 234 mph. What was the max. speed of the Mk I and Mk IA?

    Thanks,

    Neil
