Tempted to use the same bits to make a production Tempest I, with the production tail, and use a serial from the Tempest I production contract that was shifted to Tempest V's.

I originally went for the Tempest on the basis of the Napier Sabre engine and radiator configuration giving a good basis for modification into a turboprop configuration similar to this:



Moreover, the larger wing of the Tempest vs the Fury family gave more potential for underwing pylons if one wanted to go for something with a predominately ground attack role.
