World of Warplanes partners with Hurricane (303. Bitwa o Anglię)
To commemorate the 78th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, Wargaming have partnered with Kino Świat on the theatrical release of Hurricane. Starring Iwan Rheon (Game of Thrones), and Directed by BAFTA and Emmy-Award winning director David Blair, the movie tells the story of 303 Polish Squadron, one of sixteen squadrons of Polish pilots who fought in the Battle of Britain. The squadron was equipped with Hawker Hurricanes and racked up an impressive combat record.
We're not done with the good news - the movie is out today in Poland! The UK release date for the movie is 7 September.
To celebrate, we will introduce a brand new hangar in-game. The RAF Northolt aerodrome, which features in the movie, is the latest and (one of the) greatest hangar to be introduced to the game. Of course, we couldn't have a collaboration with a film full of Hawker Hurricanes without having one in-game! You will be able to climb inside the cockpit of a Hawker Hurricane, complete with Squadron 303 insignia, to pay homage to the brave Polish pilots who flew them in World War Two.
The hangar and plane will be available in-game soon, so stay tuned for their arrival!
