    Default 151 Sqn Cannon armed Huriicane

    On 13 august 1940 F/Lt I S Smith 151 Sqn claimed a Do 215 (most likely a Do 17Z) in "the cannon armed Hurricane."
    Could it be confirmed that this was Hurricane MkI P2640 armed with Four Oerlikon Cannon?
    Many thanks

    Hi Tony,
    Roddick Lee Smith claimed a 215 on August 13th whilst flying Hurricane L1750 armed with two cannons.
    This was later officially confirmed as a Do17.
    Whilst with 151 Squadron he regularly flew both the 2 and 4 cannon versions of the hurricane.
    Hope this helps
    Gerry
