Can anyone tell me why, in the list of flyables in QMB, there is a seemingly random Hurricane variant down among the German aircraft?

Has anyone noticed the increased durabilty of the B-1 interceptor?
Last night, I lowered my landing gear whilst going too fast and one of the wheels was ripped off. I still managed to land the thing and take off again, TWICE! I wasn't even landing on a runway!
I remember this thing used to explode if you bumped down a tiny bit too hard before, never mind hitting the deck with a missing wheel!

The Mk1 Hurricane served with the Finns (an ally of Germany).

The Bi-1 is a novelty and no one should lose any sleep over it IMHO.
