The Hurricane was developed as a monoplane out of the biplane fighter know as the Fury. The Hawker Company began production of the plane in 1937. Some of these planes were in the battle for France. In the Battle of Britain, the Hurricane was a large part of the British Air Defense. The Hurricane also saw action in South-East Asia during the war. In addition over 2,000 of these planes were sent to the U.S.S.R during the war, though many were lost in the transportation to the Soviet Union. Companies who built this plane were the Hawker and Gloster factories located in the United Kingdom along with the Canadian Car and Foundry in Montreal, Canada. Over 14,5000 of these planes were produced.
