I don't like offensive part of Summer Storm but I will slog for this. 

  Fight like you are the third monkey on the ramp to Noah's Ark and brother, it's starting to rain.

Can you do the Hurricane missions during the event phases or only in between ??

I really don't like Invasion but will play to get Hurricane points ;-)

I find it odd that the MR version of the plane is superior...

why would you have an event for a t4 a/c for t4 and above?  seriously, why not have the event for t3-t5?  it certainly could attract more new and lower level players to participation than just getting the old gang to add one more plane to their hangers that will sit there and not really see many hours logged.

You can play until the 14th. So you don't have to play during summer storm. Less painful.

if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Hurricane Hunt is not too bad, I did the first two missions during Invasion which is pretty useless and even worse for getting points (battles are very short), but still managed to get them just playin' ...

i was not going for the Mehicane-1a but ended up getting it while grinding my P-43 and XP-44....was a nice surprise.  I'll try to not let it gather dust.

The 3d mission part doesn't always seem to keep track of the required achievements.

I've had 3 missions yesterday.

2 wins and was prime scorer on the team (F2A and I-153 DM), no progress in part 3 Hurricane mission.
Lost a battle in my Bf-109, but was topscorer of my team and got a +1 in part3 mission.


btw: this marathon for a mediocre Tier IV plane seems to be more difficult than the one from last month for the Tier VI iron Maiden Spit Vb.

Make sure you have most "personal points" ; you can end up as #1 but another pilot might have more personal points ...

Good point. This is absolutely correct.  Rated with shiny 1st place grade you may not be the one with most personal points in the team.

What are personal points?
Is this just the points that feature after your name in battle results.

In case of the f2a you might be right, i was number 1 in battle result but scored lower than number 2. (Due to ground kills?)
in case of the I-153, i almost had the double of points as number 2 in my team (was only human at my side)
