Sea Hurricane Mk IC in formation, but I don't see any arrester hooks, as the hooks should be forward of the tail wheel, but than again maybe they haven't been installed but than again, I've been wrong before. In 1941, 400 Hurricanes were converted with catapult spools and arrester hooks, for the Fleet Air Arm.
