Based on the Royal Air Force's most numerous single-seat fighter, the Hawker IID tank buster is nicknamed the 'Flying Can Opener'. A Vickers S gun beneath each wing fires 40mm armour-piercing ammunition. Each is mounted under a machine-gun firing tracer rounds to aid with sighting, making them accurate and deadly. They served in North Africa from mid-1942 where they achieved considerable success; claims included 148 tanks hit, of which 47 were destroyed, plus nearly 200 other vehicles.
