The Hawker Hurricane was the main fighter of the RAF through the early stages of World War II. Most of the German planes shot down by British aircraft during the Battle of Britain were downed by Hurricanes, which while slower than the newer Supermarine Spitfire, was highly resistant to damage, maneuverable, and perhaps most importantly, was available in much larger numbers. As more Spitfires became available, Hurricanes were gradually replaced as a frontline fighter, and many were relegated to more specialized roles such as ground attack. Over 14,000 Hurricanes were built during the war.

In 1939, several changes were made to the design of the existing Hurricane. These included a new powerplant, the Merlin III, a new metal propeller, new radios, and Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) equipment. Additionally, the aircraft was armed with eight, closely grouped .303" machine guns which provided an excellent field of fire. During combat, it was discovered that the Hurricane's fuel tanks were vulnerable to machine gun fire from enemy bombers, which could then ignite the aircraft mid flight. However, despite this the Hurricane would go on to be extremely successful during the Battle of Britain and would ultimately down more aircraft than the Spitfire.

The Hurricane Mk II first flew in June 1940. The only significant difference between this and the original Mk I was the use of the Merlin XX engine (providing 1,280 hp). This increased the top speed of the Hurricane to 342 mph at 22,000 feet. The Mk II Series 1 entered front line service in September 1940, in time to take part in the later stages of the battle of Britain, although not in large numbers compared to the older aircraft. The Hurricane Mk II appeared in more variants than any other model of the aircraft. By October 1941 the Mk II equipped 57 home squadrons, with a further 25 overseas squadrons having received it by the end of the year.

The 'Hurri-bombers', as they came to be known, bravely carried the fight to the European mainland in late 1941 and early 1942, initially armed with a pair of 250lb bombs and later with two 500lb bombs, together with an up-rated armament of twelve Browning .303 inch machine guns from the original eight.

It was a great anti-tank weapon, because it's cannons were much more effective against tanks than regular bombs. The first Hurricanes of this type were used in the summer of 1942.
