The Hurricane was designed by Sydney Camm of Hawker Aircraft Ltd. in 1933. It was the first Royal Air Force monoplane fighter and its first to exceed 300 MPH. Introduced in 1935, the Hurricane entered service in December 1937. It was a rugged and sturdy aircraft coupled with a Rolls-Royce Goshawk engine. In August 1940 during the Battle of Britain, Hurricanes brought down more enemy aircraft than all other defenses combined.
