The effect is to make 37,000 .303 inch August Most of the Mk 22s were built with enlarged tail surfaces, similar to those of the Supermarine Spiteful. the Mk. The most reliable performance figures and weight measurements came from the tests carried out throughout the Second World War by the Aeroplane & Armament Experimental Establishment (A&AEE) based at Boscombe Down.

Subjecting water to pressures above or below atmospheric pressure raise or lowers its triple points and causes it to boil at "standard" temperature if subjected to near one atmosphere of "vacuum" Such vacuum levels are common in spark-ignition internal-combustion engine intake manifolds at "idle" speeds and loads rendering water useless as a liquid-column manometer test medium. meeting a new German aircraft in combat. As an example, the maximum power generated by the Merlin 61 was 1,565 hp (1,167 kW) at 12,250 feet (3,730 m) (critical altitude) at M.S.

It was the design of Reginald J. Mitchell, chief designer of Supermarine Aviation Works, a subsidiary of Vickers-Armstrong. production Mk. swing to one side during takeoff. [2], The undercarriage mountings were redesigned and the undercarriage doors were bowed in cross section allowing the legs to sit lower in the wells, eliminating the upper-wing blisters over the wheel wells and landing gear pivot points. Unless otherwise noted all Griffon-engined Spitfire variants used the strengthened DunlopAH10019 "four spoke" pattern mainwheels.
