As stated.... doesn't seem to be diff braking or steerable tail wheel ... but it sure seems to turn in the air on a dime!

It uses the same bicycle-style handbrake as all the other British planes and most of the Soviet planes.

Ok so maybe I struggle with them too! ... that applies braking to both wheels yes? ... so what is the trick to turning please?

Apply the brake, then push one of the pedals. It will release pressure from one of the wheels.

You can apply the rudder pedals first if you want or both rudder and brake at the same time . The rudder position determines how much braking pressure  is applied to the left versus right when you pull the brake lever. You can see the pressure applied to either side on the "Brakes" guage, just to the left of the altimeter in the Typhoon.
