Hawker Sea Hawk (1953)

1962-1975 650 manufactured
The Hawker Sea Hawk was a British single-seat jet fighter aircraft developed in the 1940s. It served primarily with the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm (FAA) from the early 1950s until the late 1960s. The Sea Hawk was designed by Hawker Aircraft, which was later merged into Hawker Siddeley. It was a rugged and reliable aircraft, seeing action during various conflicts, including the Suez Crisis and the Indian-Pakistani Wars.

The Sea Hawk was powered by a Rolls-Royce Nene turbojet engine, giving it a top speed of around 600 mph (965 km/h). It was armed with four 20mm Hispano Mk. V cannons and could carry a variety of bombs and rockets. While it was a capable aircraft for its time, it was eventually replaced by more advanced jet fighters like the Hawker Hunter.

The Sea Hawk had several variants, including the F.1, FGA.6, and FB.5, each with specific roles and improvements over the previous versions. It played a significant role in the early years of naval jet aviation and contributed to the development of carrier-based aircraft tactics and technologies.
