I think that Hurricane MkII field mod has been configured not so well.. blame it with intensive fire and you can hardly see few holes (otherwise it continue to fly as notingh appened... however is THE SAME for ALL Hitted aircraft... Folk feedback pls..

No problems for me...unless you get into a turn fight with these guys you can beat them with almost anything else and their damage model is fine. A few blasts from cannon fire to the wings and they are flying out of the sky.

Remember that the Hurricanes were reputed by their pilots and by their adversaries for being able to withstand a decent amount of damage. Compaired to the Spitfires and Bf 109's they fought during the Battle of Britain, Hurricanes were noted for being easy to repair and quick to fix so that they would be up and flying again. Apparently this had to do with the fabric skin used in some of the areas.

But I find nothing challenging about the DM for the Hurricane. Its a good tough fighter...you do need to hammer it a bit, but its no less vulnerable than anything else.

Heck, the 109F-2s armanent of a 15mm cannon and a couple 7.92s is enough to overkill these things. A few hits to the engine or radiator and they're out of the action, period.
