HAWKER HURRICANE


Junkers K.47



Source: Britain

Considered: Projected for purchase in 1940 or 1941

Type: Fighter aircraft




NOTES

  • The purchase of Hawker Hurricanes was a long-term project. In the late 1930s the Latvian military was looking to acquire a technologically advanced light fighter. This would be a transitional aircraft to prepare their pilots for the eventual purchase of either Hurricanes, Spitfires or Messerschmidt Bf-109s. However, as war became more and more likely the source nations looked to their own military readiness and the purchase of such technology from abroad became impossible.
