Desert Hurricanes

by Yukinobu Nishikawa


Hawker Hurricane Mk.IID

HyperScale is proudly supported by Squadron




These 3 profiles are Hawker Hurricanes, Mk II C & D, in Egypt at 1942.

BP 188 (Title Image)

BP 188 is Mk II D with 40mm machine guns for anti-tank role also 0.303 inches machine guns are equipped to launch tracer ammunitions for shooting 40mm guns.

BP 389

BP389 is Mk II C with 20mm machine guns, but not same as usual Mk II C because this aircraft has only tow 20mm machine guns. Tow machine guns are removed for compensation of the weight of reconnaissance purpose camera. Coloring of this aircraft is my speculation. In the photo picture, this aircraft has much light color than other Hurricanes in the same photo picture.

HC 887

HC 887 is Mk II C with 4 x 20 mm machine guns. In the photo picture, this aircraft has fuel tanks under the both wings but I could not get detail information of these tanks and carriers so that I did not draw them.
