 Hawker-Siddeley - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
These included the Hawker Hind and the Hawker Hart, which became the most produced UK airplane in the years before the Second World War.
Almost every Hawker Aircraft design of the Second World War was a success (even if not initially) mainly attributable to the design genius of Sidney Camm (later Sir Sidney) and the team he worked with.
Hawker and de Havilland merged in 1959, followed by Blackburn Aircraft, Avro (along with Avro Canada) and Whitworth (already part of Hawker), Folland and Gloster over the next year, forming the Hawker-Siddeley Group.

The Hawker Hurricane is a fighter design from the 1930s which was used extensively by the Royal Air Force during the Battle of Britain.
The Hawker Hector was intended as a replacement for the Hawker Audax Army co-operation aircraft.
Over 500 Harts were built but this total rose to over 3000 when all the follow on types (Hind, Audax, Hardy, Demon, Hart Trainers, Hartbee, Osprey and Hector) were included, and it was the cornerstone of British air expansion in the 1930s.

The Hawker Hart designed by Sydney Camm was the finest RAF light bomber of the interwar period.
The Hart was found to provide outstanding performance with beautifully harmonised controls which made it immediately popular with it's pilots and during tests at Martelsham Heath the Hart was dived to a maximum speed of 328 mph.
During the early 1930's the Hawker Hart was the mainstay of the RAF light bombing force and many were built as dual control trainers, soldiering on in that role well into world war two.

The Hawker Hind thus entered RAF service from late 1935 as an interim day bomber replacement for the Hart, to equip the rapidly expanding bomber force pending development of the Blenheim and Battle.
Compared with the Hart, improvements were made for the Observer/Gunner in both the bombing position and in the deep cutaway of the Scarff-ring gun mounting (for slipstream protection and a better field of fire).

The Hart was a twin-seat, single-engined, biplane bomber.
When it appeared, the Hart was faster than contemporary fighters.The design showed what could be achieved by aerodynamic refinement and was very influential, but owed much to the earlier Fairey Fox light bomber, that was more or less ignored by the RAF.
In adddition a Hawker Hart was briefly on the inventory of 781 squadron from July-August 1941.

The Hawker Hind was the penultimate derivative of a design which spanned nearly ten years of production, and comprised the lion's share of British military aircraft production in the 1930's.
The line starts with the Hawker Hart which was built to meet specification G.12/26 as the Air Ministry sought to replace the DH.9 and Fairy Fawn light day bombers.
The main differences with the earlier Hart are a new powerplant (the Rolls Royce Kestrel V) and the inclusion of refinements from the earlier derivatives such as the cut-down rear cockpit developed for the Demon.

In the history of aircraft, the Hawker Hart has to be a record holder for spawning the most variants of a basic design.
The proliferation of variants stems from the profound psychological effect the Hart had when it first appeared in 1930: it was an elegant and highly streamlined single engine bomber with clean lines.
The two-seat Hawker Demon fighter was one of the last of the Hart variants and some 234 Demons were built.

A further 42 Harts were purchased from three manufacturers in Sweden; twenty-one airframes from The Central Workshops of the Air Force (CVM), eighteen airframes from AJSA at Linköping and three from Götaverken, a major shipyard in Gothenburg, which just had started an aircraft department.
The Harts were withdrawn as combat aircraft in 1940 and later used for target towing, weather reconnaissance, liaison etc. Most of the aircraft built made short careers as dive-bombers, but made an invaluable contribution in developing the dive bombing technique, later refined with the B 5 and B 17 aircraft.

The Hart, which proved to be the most adaptable biplane ever to enter RAF service, was designed to Air ministry spec 12/26 and was chosen as the standard day bomber over the Fairey Fox and Avro Antelope.
Although Harts performed well in the watch and ward duties on the NWFP they were dogged by spares problems and were handed in in Jun 1940 when the unit reverted to wapitis and a flight of Audaxes.
The Audax which appeared in 1931 was the army cooperation version of the Hart, differentiated, by the long exhaust pipes and message collecting hook connected to the undercarriage.
