The Hawker Hurricane Mk. II BE421, which is the role model for the nearest depicted aircraft, served with No. 174 Squadron as XP-G. No.174 was formed at Manston in March 1942, taking over seventeen Hurricanes and eight pilots from No.607, which enabled the new unit to commence combat operations immediately. The unit was specializing in fighter-bomber missions against enemy shipping and coastal targets.
