What is the possibility of having the sand filter included on one of the hurricane models we have in game.

Since this was on the hurricanes sent to Russia i feel it would not be out of place to include. Of course it also fit in nicely with our desert map.

I appreciate that Oleg has bigger fish to fry than this, but im sure this would be only a small mod to an experienced modeller.

not to forgett the HurricaneMkIIs over Singapore/Sumatra/JAva in 1942 had dustfilters too! but, remember, that degrades the perfomance a lot http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Some of the first Hurricanes in Russia also had sand filters. I'm surprised one wasn't added a long time ago.

3.JG51_bigBear those are the Hurris im refering to one has recently been recovered for restoration and is going to be given back to the Russians which is what made me think to suggest this mod.

I bump for a desert Hurricane! MAYBE the filter could be added as a payload..... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

But i realy LOVE to see a Sea Hurricane.

Yep, Sea Hurricanes, filters. I agree. It`s just occurred to me there`s no Pacific dynamic campaign for the Hurricane. The 1st Hurricanes arrived in Asia in Jan `42, I think. May be it is in the campaign choice, I will check.

Considering the Hurricane flew in just about every theatre around this is a quite glaring omission.

Also, I reckon the 250Lb bombs should be a little more forward on their racks. But I guess it`s a small point. I thank Oleg for at least putting the bombs there.

hurri's where used in the desert till allies won (probably after too) and used in burma till end of war. as for russian service that may have gone to to end of war, maybe in 2nd line duties.

for the G/A role , i think the Hurricane MkII-d would be awesome http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The Hurricane IIb recently pulled from a lake near Murmansk was still carrying RS82 missiles. By March '42 most Hurricanes in that region were wired for missile firing (article in Aeroplane). Given that we are supposedly to receive a Murmansk map this seems an obvious (and easy) addition.

Not to get too off topice here, but it would also be cool to see the 109 get its desert filter. It'd be really cool to see late model 109Es and early Fs with desert filters taking on desert equipped spits and huris online. It would probably be quite a challenge given the performance restrictions the filters put on the engines.

I am pretty sure Harti made a sand-filter for the Freidrich & Gustav 109s variants. Now, as far as getting them into the game, this is another question on it's own.

Yeah, I don't think anything Harti did is going to end up in the game any time soon.
