Spitfire Wings and Armament
The Spitfire had a series of modified wings which were able to house various combinations of armament Each wing variation was given a designation of either 'a' wing, 'b' wing, 'c' wing, 'd' wing, or 'e' wing.

The wing designation was combined with the mark number of the Spitfire, therefore 'P9374' Spitfire Mk.Ia, is an 'a' wing as specified below: -.

'a' wing
The original design of the spitfire wing housed eight 0.303" Browning Machine Guns as the firepower was adequate for the light aircraft structures encountered early in the second World War, with most of the Spitfires in the Battle of Britain being 'a' wing aircraft. Each machine gun had 300 rounds.
