Help needed with Typhoon squadrons and their weapon loadouts in 1944

Recommended Posts

I would like to compile a list of Typhoon squadrons that shows whether they were a rocket-equipped squadron ("Rockphoons") or a bomb-equipped squadron ("Bombphoons"), based on what missions they were flying in 1944-45. Any help in compiling such a list would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

The following info is from vol 4 of the 2nd TAF by Shores and Thomas and so only covers the sqns in that TAF of course.
I didn't include 486sqn as I guess their conversion away from the Tiffy in early '44 is a bit too early for your needs?
These are just photos taken on my phone so some had to be cobbled together if the text was spread across two pages.

For rocket squadrons, the RP-3 with the 60lb warhead was standard. For bombers, the loads varied between 500lb and 1000lb bombs, and some cluster munitions.

Some Weapon loadout info here:
