With WWII era aircrafts to be incorporated in the game, the legendary Spitfire is unavoidable.  With more than twenty thousands airframes produced, the number of variants and sub-variants is high.   So, before selecting which type(s) to take into account, either as an historical or a cheat item, these notes are reviewing the aircraft in general.

Spitfire Variants
Variants were thus numerous, including the Seafire, Seafang and Spiteful.   Essentially, they differ with engine installation and wings type, although there are naturally many other aspects.  Besides the naval variants, some had a pressurized cockpit (P) while others were dedicated photo-reconnaissance aircrafts (R).  Some variants were dedicated low flying (LF) aircrafts while others on the contrary were aiming at higher altitudes (HF).  Finally, a tear drop canopy (TD)  was adopted late on the production line.  Production numbers varied considerably and not all types were used outside UK. 
The table further below attempts to make a useful summary of those differences without, even for a minute, trying to be exhaustive.   Data collected from : 
Website : Supermarine Spitfire Variants – The Initial Merlin-Powered Line
Website : Spitfire Mk. IX, XI and XVI – Variants Much Varied
Website : http://www.456fis.org/SPITFIIRE_VARIANTS.htm

Dimensions
Not all Spitfires have the same dimensions, either in length or wing span.  For example, some had their famous elliptical wingtips squared off, reducing span to 32'02" while other had a pointed wingtips intalled, the former to enhance roll rate and aimed at lower altitudes, the latter to allow higher altitudes to be reached (see Wings further below).  

In the below table are just a few examples to illustrate dimensions, as wing/fuselage match was variable.   Thus the cropped wings V is just shown as an example, while the VI and VII were dedicated high altitude fighers (but some deliverd with standard wings).

Wing Types - Ref: http://spitfiresite.com/2010/04/concise-guide-to-spitfire-wing-types.html 
Before adressing the airframe/engine variants, it would be worth summarizing the wing types with wich the Spitfire was equipped.   In a delibarate simplistic manner, wings varied in shape and structure in order to cater for inboard weapons (either .30cal or .50cal machine guns or 20mm cannons or a mix thereof) and for aerodynamic reasons: 
 basic wing, with either clipped or extended wingtips, catering for different weapons arrangements
 revised "new" wings for late production Spitfires (and Spiteful/Seafang sequels)
 folding variants of the above equipping some of the naval Seafire variants

Some of these wing could accept underwing stores.  The under fuselage load carrying capacity is mentioned as an additional information.   However simplified, it is hoped the below summary isn't too much a betrayal :

Specifications of the various Spitifire iterations
Seaplane Versions
Not one of the "main" types naturally, but because authors of this tentative game fancy about this "genre", this particular version is also referred to.

Engines
In this simplified summary, "M" stands for Merlin, "G" for Griffon, and "P" for Packard.   Reference to sub-types (low or high altitude specialized variants) is deliberately discarded.

Spitfire Variants in Atlantic Air Combat
Several Spitfire/Seafire variants will be made available in the game.   Operators will be chosen among those mentioned above together with a couple of "cheat".  These variants however will "standardized" as outlined below.

Propelled by the AAC V-1720 Marlin engine
Spitfire IXb classical format illustrating the various exports (V, VIII, IX, XIX)
Spitfire XI PR covering all versions of the photo reconnaissance variant of the Spitfire
Spitfire TR9 illustrating that particular training variant (with the Irish Air Corp in mind)
Spitfire Vb Seaplane format to satisfy a personal fantasy of the game's authors
Seafire III

illustrating the specific type used by Ireland (the presence of the Spitfire in the game is actually generated by the late Irish use of the Seafire)

Seafire III TR9 a cheat variant to make this trainer a carrier capable aircraft
Propelled by the AAC V-2450 Griffin engine
Spitfire F24

to illustrate the similarly looking late IX variants issued to South Africa (with buble canopy), and covering for the XIV and XVI issued to (eg) France and Belgium, and the F22 exported to Rhodesia

Seafire F47 a carrier borne Spitfire F24 intended as a cheat for the South African Navy

Specifications

The typical elliptical wing will be used for both the Spitfire IX and Seafire III (essentially the same aircraft from a game building point of view) while the F24/F47 will use the "new" wing

Internal fuel will be maximized using all fuel cells options as outlined above (same for all aircrafts)
