UPGRADED MOULDS – PHOTO ETCHED FRET INCLUDED
The Sea Hurricane; derived from the famous Hawker fighter; was developed to provide air cover for cargo ships convoys. The first versions were modified to be carried by merchant ships equipped with a catapult for launching the Sea Hurricanes. The ships; however; had no recovery facilities and cranes. The only alternative for the pilots was to find a friendly landing base; if autonomy could allowed it; or ditching. Despite these operating limits; the Sea Hurricane gained the first victories. The Sea Hurricane Mk Ib version has been equipped with arrest hook and the fighter could operated from aircraft carriers; such as HMS Furious and HMS Eagle; and from MAC ships; large cargo vessels with flight deck enable to launch and recover the aircrafts. From February 1942; Sea Hurricane Mk Ic; has been introduced. More than 400 planes has been produced and they were used in Mediterranean and Atlantic areas.
