The Hawker Hurricane was one of the primary British fighter aircraft of World War II. Although it was responsible for a greater number of Axis planes destroyed in the war, history relegates the Hurricane to the shadow of it’s more famous cousin, the Supermarine Spitfire. While equipped with the powerful Rolls-Royce Merlin XX V12 engine, the Hurricane’s relative large size and thick wings meant it would never be as fast as sleek German Bf-109s and Fw-190s. As the Spitfire took over the role of Britain’s main dog fighting aircraft, the Hurricane was transformed into a ground attack aircraft, a task for which it was ideally suited. This configuration, known as the Hurricane IIc, was armed with four powerful Hispano 20mm cannons and up to a 1000 pound bomb load. Many such aircraft were “Tropicized,” with additional air filters and desert camouflage, and sent to North Africa in support of British forces.
