Hawker Hurricane Mk II RAF No.134 Sqn, Russia,1941 (AA32013)


Hawker Hurricane Mk II Diecast Model in 1/72 scale, RAF No.134 Sqn, Z5226, Vaenga, USSR, September 1941. During the early stages of WWII the British shipped an entire Hurricane wing to Russia, with 24 aircraft ready to fly and 15 in crates. Their task was to give air cover to ports in northern Russia that received convoys, before training the Russians in their use.

The Hawker Hurricane was a British single-engine fighter aircraft and the first monoplane fighter used by the Royal Air Force. First flown on November 6 1935, the Hurricane entered operational service with the RAF in December 1937. Together with the Spitfire, the Hurricane was essential in enabling the RAF to win the Battle of Britain in 1940, accounting for the majority of the RAF's air victories. The aircraft was also adapted for use as a fighter-bomber, night-fighter/intruder and ground support aircraft. A version known as the Sea Hurricane had modifications which enabled operations from ships. More than 14,000 Hurricanes were built by the end of 1944 (including at least 800 converted to Sea Hurricanes and some 1,400 built in Canada).
