Hawker Typhoon “Pulverizer IV” was ﬂown by Canadian pilot Flt. Lt. Harry Hardy. The Typhoon provided close air support to advancing ground units and pounded German strongpoints, armor and troop concentrations with bombs, rockets and cannon ﬁre. These missions were often ﬂown at low level and were particularly hazardous for Typhoon pilots, which were not only vulnerable to attack by Luftwaffe ﬁghter aircraft, but also from ground ﬁre. The dangerous nature of these operations is highlighted by the fact that there were three previous Typhoons ﬂown by Lt. Hardy bearing the name Pulverizer, all three of which were damaged or destroyed while on missions.Detailed pilot figure

The Typhoon was a British single-seat fighter-bomber produced by Hawker Aircraft. Introduced in 1941, as the intended replacement for the Hawker Hurricane as an interceptor, the Typhoon eventually evolved into one of the most successful ground-attack aircraft of World War II.
