SPITFIRE PR Mk VII

Another reconnaissance version. The P.R. VII used an IA airframe with a Merlin 45. Three cameras were fitted. Extra fuel was carried in the rear of the fuselage in the area where the radio would normally have been fitted. No radio was fitted on this Mark. The P.R.VII had no fuel tanks in the wings, meaning the armament of eight machine guns could be retained. A large oil tank was fitted under the nose as per the Mk P.R. III and IV.
