Hawker Siddeley
by a team headed by Sir Sydney Camm . The P.1121, which was initially funded as a private venture by the company, was being developed with the aim of producing a suitable aircraft that conformed with the requirements of Operational Requirement 339 (OR.339) by the Air Ministry

Hawker Siddeley P.1127
The HAWKER P.1127 and the HAWKER SIDDELEY KESTREL FGA.1 were the experimental and development aircraft that led to the Hawker Siddeley Harrier , the first vertical and/or short take-off and landing (V/STOL ) jet fighter-bomber. Kestrel development began in 1957, taking advantage of the Bristol Engine Company

Hawker Siddeley P.1154
The HAWKER SIDDELEY P.1154 was a planned supersonic vertical/short take-off and landing (V/STOL) fighter aircraft designed by Hawker Siddeley Aviation (HSA). Developed alongside the subsonic and smaller Hawker Siddeley P.1127/Kestrel , the P.1154 was derived from the P.1150. The P.1150 proposal did not meet NATO
NATO
Basic Military Requirement 3 and, consequently, the P.1154 was born. This Mach 2-capable aircraft retained plenum chamber burning previously designed for the P.1150. Although the technical winner of eleven submissions, follow-on testing and production for the P.1154 did not proceed as a result of political strife. Meanwhile, Hawker Siddeley

Hawker Sea Fury
The HAWKER SEA FURY was a British fighter aircraft designed and manufactured by Hawker . It was the last propeller -driven fighter to serve with the Royal Navy, and one of the fastest production single piston-engined aircraft ever built. Developed during the Second World War , the Sea Fury entered service two years after the war ended. The Sea Fury proved to be a popular aircraft with a number of overseas militaries, and was used during the Korean War

in the early 1950s, as well as against the 1961 Bay of Pigs Invasion

Hawker Tempest
The HAWKER TEMPEST was a British fighter aircraft primarily used by the Royal Air Force
Royal Air Force
(RAF) in the Second World War . The Tempest, originally known as the Typhoon II, was an improved derivative of the Hawker Typhoon , intended to address the Typhoon's unexpected fall-off of performance at high altitude by replacing its wing with a thinner laminar flow design. Having diverged considerably from the Typhoon, it was chosen to rename the aircraft Tempest. The Tempest emerged as one of the most powerful fighters of World War II
World War II
and was the fastest single-engine propeller-driven aircraft of the war at low altitude. The propeller-driven Dornier 335 was even faster, but it had two engines

Hawker Typhoon
The HAWKER TYPHOON (TIFFY in RAF slang), was a British single-seat fighter-bomber , produced by Hawker Aircraft
Hawker Aircraft
. It was intended to be a medium–high altitude interceptor , as a replacement for the Hawker Hurricane but several design problems were encountered and it never completely satisfied this requirement. The Typhoon was originally designed to mount twelve .303 inch (7.7 mm) Browning machine guns and be powered by the latest 2000 hp engines. Its service introduction in mid-1941 was plagued with problems and for several months the aircraft faced a doubtful future. When the Luftwaffe brought the formidable Focke-Wulf Fw 190 into service in 1941, the Typhoon was the only RAF fighter capable of catching it at low altitudes; as a result it secured a new role as a low-altitude interceptor

Hawker P.V.3
The HAWKER P.V.3 was a British single-engined biplane fighter prototype of the 1930s.

CONTENTS * 1 Design and development * 2 Specifications * 3 References * 4 External links DESIGN AND DEVELOPMENTIn 1930 the British Air Ministry

circulated a draft version of Specification F.7/30 for a heavily armed day and night fighter around likely manufacturers. The new fighter was to have a speed of at least 250 mph (400 km/h) and a good climb rate. As it was expected that the high speeds of both the fighter and its prospective targets would only allow short bursts of fire to hit the target, an armament of four Vickers machine guns was required, double that of earlier fighters
