FORCES OF VALOR 1:72 UK Hurricane WWII 1940

The Hawker Hurricane was developed as a fighter plane. The Hawker Hurricane was to revolutionize all future fighter plane designs. It was to play a vital role in the Battle of Britain and eventually in many other theatres of WWII. It was in the Battle of Britain that the Hurricane made its mark. The battle is frequently associated with Reginald Mitchell's Spitfire, but the Hurricane played a major role in this battle. On August 8th, 1940, the RAF could call on 32 squadrons of Hurricanes and 19 of Spitfires. Therefore, the Hurricane was the dominant British plane in this battle.

Many U.K. Ace Pilots flew Hurricanes including No. 1 Sqdn. Pilot Officer V.C. Woodward (33 and 213 Squadrons) with 14 victories (out of 18) plus three shared flying Hurricanes.
