 I use to think the UK Venom was the worst plane in this game.

But now absolutely totally it is the UK Hurricane IID that's the worst of them ALL.

40mm cannons do very little damage to ground or air targets.  I refuse to waste coins on Universal ammo on 40mm cannons - refuse !

Still hoping that they'll actually release a Hurricane Mk I as a tier 4 fighter.

Or they can release a stock Hurricane Mk IIA with 8-12 303's or the Hurricane Mk IIC which mounted 4 20mm's as Tier 5 MRF.

    1. Try to secure the upper hand before attacking.
    2. Always continue with an attack you have begun
    3. Open fire only at close range, and then only when the opponent is squarely in your sights
    4. You should always try to keep your eye on your opponent, and never let yourself be deceived by ruses
    5. In any type of attack, it is essential to assail your opponent from behind
    6. If your opponent dives on you, do not try run away from his attack, but fly to meet it
    7. When over the enemy's lines, always remember your own line of retreat
    8. It is better to attack in groups of four or six. Avoid two aircraft attacking the same opponent

I am sitting on over 180,000,000. silver because i do use universal.

Some how the UK Hurricane llD and ground targets send up a red flag.

Universal sets fire and cripples a lot of planes if not kills in one pass with cannons.

You may want to rethink your actions or try some thing different.

If not you can give up sell the plane and have one empty hanger.

 when the 40mm cannons hit, they hit really hard for the tier. Problem is that is the only good thing going for the hurricane.

If you have 3-digit ping then don't expect big guns like that to work...when they hit the damage is even delayed that way.

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

Yes the Hurricane sucks , have not flown it for years, and probably never will.

 

"win" rate 48.46% lowest of all tier 5 UK planes and 2nd worst (Sleipnir not taken into this count) of all tier 5 planes, need I say more?

 

(btw, my win rate is 67% in it but I don't like the plane at all that's it)

I'll reword that into high 3 digit ping. I get about 120 ping and the big guns work for me.

I don't fly it much, but it's not that bad.

Been flying the hurricane recently... I'm much better in it, but it is still the most frustrating to fly...  Canons seem to fire every which way but the direction you are pointing.

I was using it for a while.

I made a nice shallow attack against a group of tents.

And was promptly frustrated as I watched the 40mm's hit everything BUT the tents.

 

It took me 3 passes to destroy 3 tents and a AAA.

It takes me 1-2 passes to do the same when I use an AM62-21.

The low-muzzle-velocity 40mm is really crap: it has short range and slow shell speed, and the damage isn't

that worth the trade off. Still it might be fun for entertaining, but one thing for sure this plane is considered one

of the weakest in tier 5

It really should have been released as the first UK GAA, and then they could've added the Hrri Mk 1, and the IIc into the tech tree.
