Alot depends on what you want to play and fight? IMHO if you want to hit ground targets the the Hurricane, but if you want to engage fighters then the "Boomer" So call it by your play style

It's in the premium shop, for today anyway.

I will be grabbing it.

I'd go with the Hurricane, if you have a good connection, decent ping, and no packet loss. Lag is a derp cannon's worst enemy. The Hurricane is very derpy -- if you get accurate in it, you'll be accused of cheating. :great:

I just wish the IID came with all the field kits associated with the type - bombs, rockets, big AT guns, etc.  VS just big AT guns.  The IID has performance comparable to the tree II.  If you want to turn and burn and feel guilty about it, get the Boomerang.

I love both of them, to bits. While you can not draw direct comparisons, the Hurricane kind of reminds me of driving the Hetzer with the 10.5cm, or the KV-2, in WoT. You can really mess up someone's day really fast if you hit well with the Hurricane. Boomerang is very nimble and hits fairly hard as well. Both are some of my go-to planes for when I really want to have a lot of fun.

I may go with the boom, I got the Hurricane II and Tornado from the event so the Boomerang will provide something different for me. Thanks all for the input. Trying to get back into the game. I only played during beta, but I have always played WoT and WoWs. So far the community is very welcoming minus a few people in game but I'm used to that....

Boomerang is a dirty filthy sealclubbing machine. 11/10 will seal club again

If you like derp guns, the Hurricane IID is a fun plane.

I have the IID.

I've even managed to get a couple of kills in it.

In a word, it SUXs, but for some reason this plane which has a lower power to weight ratio than the lighter Hurricane I and IIA,B,C's can climb faster than them.

 

IRL it's supposed to be an attack plane, purely anti-tank and anti-vehicle.

It was useless for any other role.

 

In this game it's useless for any role other than shooting at ground targets.

A Britsh version of the Stuka with the derp cannons.

    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 disagree, but it does depend on personal ability to use slow firing guns.

It has been thoroughly tested and the clime rate is the same as the Hurricane II. The stats given for the Hurricane II are incorrect

 

I have not flown it in combat yet, but having a good number of games in the Yaks 7 & 9 derp cannons are quite effective against planes once you get the aim down. Marksmen 1 & 2 helps a lot

It's not just slow firing, they're also fairly low velocity.

I have both and honestly they're both fun effective aircraft.

 

The Boom is more of a dogfighter, able to turn in tight and the like. The II D is a high HP killer. It likes to target attack and heavy fighters

that are down low(especially if the heavy has lost its energy and cant boost away fast enough). I enjoy the II D more right now since its my

first Hurricane(which is one of my favorite brit aircraft) and it packs a punch. Just don't try to out turn a light fighter like a Spitfire, Yak, or Ki-43...

You will get eaten.

 

The II D is also good at killing off base defense aircraft quickly as long as you get a handle on the ballistics of the cannons.

They require a bit of practice to hit with, but I'm able to use them to good effect.

 

I suggest binding a key or mouse button to Weapon Group 1, which will fire only the cannons. Without the pair of .303 MGs firing, you can more easily determine if you are hitting.

The 45mm on the Yak 9 is slow firing and low velocity so you get some serious shell drop to compensate for. 

 

I get it, but I am comfortable with it. Marksmen skills makes a huge difference in landing a hit with wing mounted derp cannons.

 

To each their own

lol you need luck with those 40mm+ cannons! Yak-9 and Yak-9U are extremely hilarious to play! you see your shell trajectory in the air, no where near the enemy target, and the target gets destroyed... #RussianBalance

I’d go with the Boomerang.  It’s an excellent fighter, kind of almost an Aussie Spitfire. Turns great, has good firepower, and is fun to fly.  Hurricane IID is a bit of an odd duck.  Great guns more suited for ground attack, but a bit too sluggish for aerial combat. It could be a decent GA plane, but lacks HP.  That’s my thoughts, and while I have both, I just got the IID.
