Hawker Hurricane Mk1

The Hurricane was developed as a replacement for the RAF's prewar biplane fighters such as the Hawker Fury and Gloster Gauntlet.  Considered revolutionary when it was unveiled in 1935, by the start of WWII the earliest versions with fabric covered wings and two bladed propellors had fallen behind the performance of the best German fighters.  Nevertheless, once fitted with a 3 blade propellor these early Hurricanes were very sucessful during the Battle of Britain in 1940.
