There were 24 Marks of Spitfire and many more sub-variants. They served in every theatre of operations during WWII and continued in use all over the world for many years afterwards. Available here are the Spitfire XIV, which was a short-range medium-high altitude fighter combining the Spitfire Mk VIII airframe with a Rolls-Royce Griffon engine, and also the rare Spitfire PR Mk XIX, the excellent photographic reconnaissance variant, of which only 225 were built out of a total of 20,341 Spitfires.
