Sidney Camm's Hurricane is perhaps the least respected major player among WWII warplanes. While the sleek and sexy Spitfire got the headlines and the glamor shots, the Hurricane did yeoman's service in the Battle of Britain and continued to do so on all fronts. The Hurricane was one of the first of the fighters adapted as ground-attack planes, as the Hurribomber. The cannon-armed version became quite popular as a tank buster.
