Description

~

Summary: British transonic fighter aircraft later updated to fighter-bomber role, and widely exported. Introduced in 1954, Hunter variants served more than 22 countries. F6 onwards had distinctive ‘dog-tooth’ wing.
~
The Hawker Hunter served in fighter-bomber and reconnaissance roles in numerous conflicts, and was also widely used as a trainer, with two-seat variants only retiring from use by the Royal Air Force in the early 1990s.
1,972 Hunters were produced, either directly by Hawker or under licence.

The Hunter was also a record-breaker, a unique, modified prototype (known as the Mk3) broke the world air-speed record for jet-powered aircraft, achieving 727.63mph - this record was broken less than three weeks later, by an RAF Supermarine Swift.
~
In Britain the Hunter was replaced in its fighter and air superiority role by the English Electric Lightning, Hawker Siddley Harrier, and the F-4 Phantom II. Other forces, including the Indian Airforce, Swiss Air Force, continued to use the Hunter for decades, while the last Hunters in military service - those of the Lebanese Air Force, were only retured in 2014, 60 years after introduction.

Built with 84 of the finest parts, precisely to scale, and using appropriate systems, colour scheme and weapons (or nearest available equivalents) where possible.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.1.3.
