The Spitfire Mk XIV with Griffon engine, Tempest, Mosquito, P-47 (lightened and souped up) and P-51 all were sent up to thwart the V-1. There's a famous extremely grainy image from the ground of a Spitfire lining up to tip a V-1.

The Tempest took out 638 V-1's, Mosquito 623, Spitfire XIV 303, Mustang 232. (from wiki)
