1CGS hard efforts on the Hurricane Mark II are finally taking their final shape as the Collector Plane nears release. Jason Williams has already told us that it’s expected to arrive in October and this week’s latest developer diary helps reinforce how much progress has been made. Let’s have a look!
Eight screenshots and a brief status update
According to Han’s developer diary update, the Hurricane Mark II is nearly ready to go and is entering the final stage. Cockpit texturing and flight model work are both underway and all of the various versions of the aircraft are nearly ready to go.
As a reminder, we’re getting the Mark IIA, B, C, D and the Russian field modification version of the Hurricane II. Each has a unique collection of armament options including the four 20mm Hispano cannon armed IIC and the 40mm Vickers S anti-tank gun armed IID. The Russian field modification also offers up an interesting mix of a pair of ShVAK 20mm and UBK 12.7mm guns. The Hurricane will also arrive with a planned for expansion of the Moscow and Stalingrad campaigns where the type was used.
The rest of this week’s update includes plenty of screenshots and here they are!
