I have been playing thru the Battle over Britain campaign and I just wanted to know if I ever get into a better Hurri or am I flying a 38 MK1 thru out? I mean its not a bad plane but Im tired of stalling my engine chasing after Emils.....

The MkI Hurricane was the only Hurricane in service at the time.

There were MkIIs being tested and maybe there was the odd squadron that were equipped with one or two early MkIIs, but the squadron you're flying for wasn't re-equipped until much later.

Many online maps put in the Hurri IIb and maybe Field mod to make up for the lack of Spitfire mkI.

The Field mod is great for knocking down Emils.

Thanks for that. I guess I will plug away in my my old MkI and see it thru, just hate stalling the engine at the worst times

Am I right in guessing you're stalling as you attempt a fast diving descent?

If so then you need to invert and pull through and then un-invert at the desired height to dive quickly without stalling.

I hope that helps.

I have the same frustration- it only takes a slight negative G and the engine starts to cut out. It often happens to me as i'm trying to line up for a shot on someone's 6.
I find the only way i can avoid it is to stop chasing (the Hurri is too slow anyway) and maneuver for a slashing pass. That way i can more easily control my G loading without losing my situational awareness.
