  1. Of course I meant the T series that were supplied to the RAAF, without looking at the individual histories, some went to 30 squadron but some might have gone to the other Beau squadron that was working up at the time.
  2. I would say just the T serials
  3. Beaufighter by Chas Bowyer has all of the serials supplied to the RAAF and their A19 numbers they became.

    No not you Smithy. This forum has a wealth of knowledge to with I am truely grateful, but, if you have an opposing view it can become tiresome when you see one side either browbeaten and spoken down to, or it becomes an arguement when someone sticks to there guns. Just my 2 cents. Back to the Hurricanes, its what im here for.

    I rarely contribute to this forum because of this. Someone needs to crank his neck in. Hes always doing it.
  6. Sorry , I called it the spar and its caused confusion. It is the center section (Hexagonal)tube that the fuselage tube connecting bracket sits on as shown it the pictures below
  7. http:// Not quite the same aircraft, just 1 serial number out. Representative?
  8. From Owen Thetford's "British Naval Aircraft since 1912" Hellcat I's were allocated the serial numbers FN320-FN449 ans JV100-JV221. Hellcat II's were allocated serials JV222-JV324, JW700-JW784, JW857-JW899, JX670-JX999, JZ775-JZ827, JZ890-JZ999, KD103-KD160 and KE118-KE265.
  9. Does anyone know what the diameter of the center section main spar tube is? Or have a drawing?
  10. No worries, I would be interested to see them......

    It's interesting that in the anti-shipping role the 25lb head rocket would curve upwards when striking the sea due to the difference in the densities of air and water. Thus crews where taught to aim just in front of a ship or U-boat to almost guarantee a "wet strike".
  13. Thank you to everyone who answered. I now have the Hawker Hurricane book by Mason and its everything I was looking for. Thanks
  14. Another view of loading torps
  15. The 4+ book mentions the vertical torpedo installation
