Ok, have played it on the Smolensk map since we don't have BoB yet. But it's still a cool way to kill an evening - and a coupla Huns too!

The Hurricane, BTW, is a lovely plane. Fast it ain't, losing its kinetic energy pretty rapidly when you zoom and whatnot - but oh boy how those Hispanos bite when you get a good bead on http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/784.gif

Try it instead of always whining about X/Y/Z being porked/über and I'm sure you'll love it!

If you do like the Hurri, have a look at this campaign at Netwings.org: Raf 46th Sqn at Norway (http://www.netwings.org/cgi-bin/dcforum/dcd.cgi?az=redirect&link_id=000001728&url=http%3A%2F%2Ffiles.netwings.org%2Ffiles%2Ffb_m issions%2FRAF_46th_Sqn_-_Norway%2FRAF46Sqn_Norway.zip), though it's the Mark I, no hispano's, it's fun...

Thanks FT, will give it a go!

Yeah, I've fallen love with the Hurricane http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/heart.gif It was somewhat obsolete already when WWII started, but hey - the bird still downed more opponents in BoB than all other types combined. And besides, where else do you find such well-behaved birds anyway? This baby practically flies itself!

Sluggish it may be, but a good Hurri driver knows this and always attacks from above. And gets the job done with those Hispanos every bloody time http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif The bird has one of the best cockpit layouts ever, too - very simple, straightforward and ergonomic.

Tally ho, is what I say!

The hurricane is also the best plane to learn to fly on. I learnt to fly in this game with a IIb against Ju 52 's

Yep, that's true because it's so simple and controllable! All in all, a brilliant design for its time (late 30s) I'd say...
