A significant player in the Battle of Britain
We are currently devloping a CGI 3d Model of the Hurricane.
The Hawker Hurricane is a British single-seat fighter aircraft
designed and predominantly built by Hawker Aircraft Ltd. Some
production of the Hurricane was carried out in Canada by the Canada
Car and Foundry Co Ltd.
The 1930s design evolved through several versions and adaptations,
resulting in a series of aircraft which acted as interceptor-fighters,
fighter-bombers (also called "Hurribombers"), and ground
support aircraft. Further versions known as the Sea Hurricane
had modifications which enabled operation from ships. Some were
converted as catapult-launched convoy escorts, known as "Hurricats".
The Hurricane was significant in enabling the Royal Air Force
(RAF) to win the Battle of Britain of 1940, accounting for the
majority of the RAF's air victories. About 14,000 Hurricanes were
built by the end of 1944 (including about 1,200 converted to Sea
Hurricanes, and about 1,400 that were built in Canada), and served
in all the major theatres of World War II.
