SUPER DECAL FOR 6 VERSIONS – COLOR INSTRUCTIONS – PHOTO-ETCHED

The Hawker Hurricane was the most widespread fighter used by the British Royal Air Force at the beginning of the Second World War. It contributed significantly to the RAF victory during the Battle of Britain but, over the course of the War, it gradually ceded the role of front-line fighter to the much more modern Spitfire. However, the Hurricane has progressively changed its role, featuring very specific versions and equipment. The Hurricane Mk. IIC was in fact equipped with significant armament consisting of 4 powerful 20 mm Hispano-Suiza cannons. mounted in the wings with almost 400 rounds. The adoption of 20 mm cannons, instead of the traditional 7.7 mm machine guns, made the Hurricane extremely effective in ground attack and close support missions. Additionally, the Hurricane Mk. IIC was effectively used as a night fighter.
