The hurricats were hurricanes fitted onto a catapult rail on a convey ship. The hurricanes were placed on special convey ship and lanched of the bow of the ship to intercept german aircraft which were about to attack the convey ships heading to russia. The pilots would then have to land on the water or land depending on which was closer and be picked up by a rescue boat.

Having hurricats in FB would make it a bit more interesting.

Close enough. Ther used a rail system where the hurricanes sat on a cart that ran along the rail propelled by rockets.

Go to www.mudmovers.com (http://www.mudmovers.com) and download poymandos excellent FAA mini-campaign. There is no catapult launch for your hurri, but takeoff is almost as interesting... /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif
