Features
   - VVS Field-modified Hurricane Mk. XI (Canadian-produce Mk.Ia) with Packard Merlin 28 engine, rear gunner and 4x Browning .303s
        - New gunner position and observer window (based on limited historical photos)
        - Use this aircraft to mark out and direct artillery strikes
        - Alternatively, can mark out enemy ground units and direct local ground attack aircraft to their position

HOW TO USE AIRCRAFT
As Forward Artillery Observer:
- As you fly over your target, press the 'Bomb' key. You may either view your target from cockpit or through the observer window (by pressing 'down view' key in gunner position)
- This will place a smoke marker near your target (wait a few seconds for the marker round to be fired)
- Wait for the message 'Artiller Firing!' and observe where the shells land
- Adjust as needed
- You can place multiple smoke markers (max of 20) in a large area to create a full barage.
As Forward Air Controller:
- As per above, but once smoke marker is placed, near-by ground attack aircraft will search for enemy units near by and destroy

Installation
1) This mod was designed with DBW/UP3 in mind, but will work with SAS ModAct. It also requires DiffFM.
2) Run the 7zip archive and extract all to your IL-2 DBW/UP/Mods directory.
3) Open the readme file in the Mods/HurricaneRussianFAC directory. Please follow instructions to add air.ini entries.

A beautiful little aircraft and a wonderfully different addition to the list of planes ... first class.

Great plane and great directional station....both artillery and plane!!

Can it be used also by AI?

I'm asking because I can't work over any 4.101 atm...

All the best!

Brilliant work! Thanks Anto.  :)

No cockpit for me, I'm afraid (ModAct 3.06); just the old two-tone horizon on mission start.

One thing about the rear gunner/observer - he is a little bit temperamental isn't he? Always complaining when you make a maneuver ... the first few times I wondered what was going on but now I understand ...

Flying in an improvised observation plane, without nothing around him but some metal tubes covered with canvas, i'm sure he has good reasons to be a bit nervous, lol!!!
