The F Mk.22 Spitfire was about as sophisticated as the post-war Spitfires were to get. It differed from the final variant, the Mk22, in only minor respects, but used the same massive Griffon engine delivering well over 2,200hp which dictated the enlarged tail control surfaces introduced with the Mk 21. The redesigned wing was a distinctive feature of the type which performed well until eventually being outclassed by the first jet fighters.
