Initially it was armed with Twelve 0.303 machine guns (Mk.1a) but these were soon swapped for Four 20mm cannons (Mk.1b). It was also capable of carrying 8 rockets or two 500lb (or later 1000lb) bombs but the cannons proved the most successful weapon used on the Typhoon. Earlier models were fitted with a canopy that used 'car door' style doors to gain entry to the cockpit. Later models had a simpler 'bubble canopy' with improved visibility for the pilot and a simpler sliding hood.
