A total of 1,715 Hawker Hurricanes flew with Fighter Command during the period of the Battle of Britain, far in excess of all other British fighters combined. The Hurricane was a robust, manoeuvrable aircraft capable of sustaining fearsome combat damage before write-off; and unlike the Spitfire, it was a wholly operational, go-anywhere do-anything fighter by July 1940.
It is estimated that its pilots were credited with four-fifths of all enemy aircraft destroyed in the period July-October 1940.
This model is no longer available to purchase and has been retired. It has since been replaced by a newer tooling.
