Supermarine Spitfire IXc 'Iran' for STRIKE FIGHTERS 2
This is a simple mod of the stock Third Wire Spitfire IXc to create a fictional Spitfire IXc in service with the Imperial Iranian Air Force in the 1946-1951 timeline.
When Iran ordered Hawker Hurricanes from the UK in 1940 there was never any real hope of the order being immediately fulfilled due to the urgent wartime demands of the Royal Air Force although 10 war weary Hurricanes were transferred from RAF Middle East Command stocks during 1943. When hostilities ceased the Iranian government asked the UK government for more advanced fighters and this was agreed leading to the transfer of 26 Supermarine Spitfire IXC's from RAF Mediterranean and Middle East Command. All 26 Spitfires were delivered to the Advanced Fighter Training Group of the Flying Training School at Doshan Teppeh during 1946.
