...would be nice to have in PF, as it apparently was used against the japanese in Burma. You can't say no to dual 40mm cannons http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

"pilots had to fly slightly nose-down when firing the cannon, since the recoil tended to make the fighter pitch up"

They were high velocity anti-tank canons. Low rate of fire. But very powerful!

Can't forget the Hurri Mk. IV either! Worth it for the extra protection and the rockets! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/784.gif

"On 14 March 1943 a modified Mk II KX045 flew in the guise of the prototype IV. Powered by a Merlin 24 producing 1650hp the new version was externally very similar to the Mark II with the exception of the heavily armoured radiator bath, which now had an angular appearance. An additional 350lb of steel plate had been added to this version in response to increasingly accurate and lethal anti aircraft fire being experienced on all fronts. The Mk IV wing was designed from the outset to accept the 20mm cannon, 40mm anti tank guns, drop tanks, bombs and the 3-inch rocket projectile. The operational debut of the Mk IV took place on the 2 September 1943 when No 137 Sqn attacked lock gates in Holland. The escort was provided by Hawker Typhoons, which would gradually replace the Hurricane in the ground attack role. By mid 1944 the Hurricane Mk IV was withdrawn completely from the European theatre, but continued to give excellent service in the Far East where six squadrons were so equipped."
