The 1941 New Hawker Tempest IIs of the first production batch at Hawker Aircraft.

Note the closely cowled engine and the carburettor and oil-cooler intakes in the starboard wing's inner leading edge.

Background to the marque;

As a result of the termination of the Tornado project, the designer Sydney Camm transferred the alternative engine proposals for the Tornado to the more advanced Tempest.

As a result the design was to use the Bristol Centaurus 18 cylinder radial engine replacing the liquid cooled engines which were in use at the time

A pair of Centaurus-powered Tempest II prototypes were completed. Apart from the new engine and cowling, the Tempest II prototypes were similar to early series Tempest Vs. The Centaurus engine was closely cowled and the exhaust stacks grouped behind and to either side of the engine: to the rear were air outlets with automatic sliding "gills". The carburettor air intakes were in the inner leading edges of both wings, an oil cooler and air intake were present in the inner starboard wing.
