Hawker produced many pivotal fighter aircraft during WWII. The Hurricane, with Supermarine's Spitfire, won the Battle of Britain. The Typhoon range over Europe and excelled as a ground attack aircraft. Then there's the Tempest . . .
The Hawker Tempest was an outgrowth of the Typhoon. But its family resemblance obscured the fact that so much of the design was entirely new.
Two major engines drove the Tempest; the Napier Sabre (2,235 HP) and the Bristol Centaurus (2,520 HP). Being partial to radial engines, a fan of the annular inlet cowling, and from the "more-horsepower-is-better" school of thought, I prefer the Mk II variant.
A good place to start is with the Wiki entry:
