So, having been involved with the Typhoon throughout its operational life, I can verify that after those initial teething troubles it became a very successful ground-attack aircraft indeed. In fact, had it not been developed, the war on the ground would have lasted much longer and been very much more expensive for the Army. The aircraft was fast by the standards of the day and carried extremely effective armament which it could deliver with accuracy. None of which would have been much use if we had not had the pilots who, despite casualties well above the average for fighter pilots, pressed home their attacks with great courage, and were always looking for more action. These pilots I particularly salute, and the ground crews who kept us flying in such difficult conditions.
