The reason more Germans were shot down by Hurricanes than Spitfires was quite simple, and that was because there were four times as many Hurricanes in the BoB than Spitfires. The Spitfires had been delayed becoming front line fighters due to the productions problems in the new type of design. If I remember rightly all the fighters had armour plate behind the pilot and a bullet proof windscreen on booth fighters even in the BoB. Also the Spitfires would take on the German fighter while the Hurricans went for the bombers which were an easier Target
