The YAS_MkVc(ZP-X).zip model is based on a Spitfire MkVc (trop),serial BS219, coded ZP-X to represent the aircraft flown by F-O "Butch" Hamilton, "Jiminy Cricket", # 457 Australian Sqd, August 1943, Darwin, Australia.
The MkVc was one of the first Spitfire capable of carrying bombs, and two 250Lb and one 500Lb bombs are therfore included in the loadout.
With the MkVc, the universal 'C' wing allowed armament to be increased to 350 rounds/ machine gun and 120 rounds/ cannon.
This visual model demonstrates the transition between the original MkII airframe and later MkIX's; new windscreen with internal armour, "blown" bubble canopy, universal 'C' wing with additional cannon, new style voltage regulator, and round rear-view mirror.
