Now to my questions:
- Where were all these Hurricanes used?
- Which units?
- from when up to which date, to which extent, etc. pp.

That's it already
Hello,

the Hurricane was most hated plane(by soviet pilot) that was delivered to USSR from western partners. Therefore, by the chance, the Hurricane was banned from the front line to the Home Air defence, the units, that did not partipiate in the war so active as VVS KA (Soviet air force).

The only exception, is the air arm of northern fleet (VVS SF), where Hurricane was used until end of 43.

Best regards
