Hurricane
Single-seat fighter, later fighter-bomber. Renowned for its role in Battle of Britain. The Hawker Hurricane was the first of the British monoplane fighters, progressively replacing Gloster Gauntlets and Gladiators from December 1937. By the outbreak of World War II in 1939, eighteen RAF squadrons were equipped with Hurricanes, compared with nine that used Spitfires. This two-to-one ratio applied through the Battle of Britain in the summer of 1940, in which Hurricanes shot down more enemy aircraft than all other defences - air and ground - combined.
