September, 1944. As the Allies moved relentlessly eastward across France after D-Day, Typhoon pilots fearlessly flew at low level to support ground troops. Depicted is 'Pulverizer 2,' flown by F/Lt.Harry Hardy of 440 Squadron, R.C.A.F., over Belgium.
Designed and introduced into R.A.F. service as an interceptor, the Hawker Typhoon was employed during 1944-45 as an instrument of tactical air support, attacking ground targets with bombs, rockets and cannon fire. Consequently it was admired and respected by troops, who witnessed first-hand the devastation it could cause.
"Typhoon Fury" depicts the Typhoon in it's element: pinning down and destroying German armor. A crewman helps his commander out of the turret of a fiercely blazing Panther and the remainder of the crew take shelter with soldiers beside the tank. For the instant, fear of the incoming aircraft overrides overrides thoughts of an ammunition explosion. A second Panther is likewise abandoned by the crew, and German soldiers dash for shelter across the street.
