The Sea Hawk Mk.100 can be outfitted with the following ordinance"

  • Without Load
  • 2 х 500 LB G.P. Mk.IV bomb
  • 4 х 500 LB G.P. Mk.IV bomb
  • 2 х M.C. 1000 lb Mk.I bomb
  • 16 х RP-3 rockets
  • 30 x AP MK II
  • 2 х 500 LB G.P. Mk.IV bomb + 10 х AP Mk II rockets
  • 2 х 500 LB G.P. Mk.IV bomb + 30 х AP Mk II rockets
  • 2 х 500 LB G.P. Mk.IV bomb + 16 х RP-3 rockets

Usage in battles

In RB ground battles, this naval jet aircraft truly shines thanks to the high number of rockets it can carry, plus bombs.

In RB air battles, this naval jet aircraft is still very deadly thanks to its speed, manoeuvrability and access to the Sidewinder air-to-air missiles, but don't get too confident since other nations have some fighters which get early air spawn and some of them have more powerful engine than the Sea Hawk, so if you want to survive, you need to be aware of your surrounding.

Be careful when using Sidewinder air-to-air missile because it might accidentally shoot your own teammates or it can just go for the sun.

Pros and cons

Pros:

  • Extremely high flap breakage speed (850 kph for takeoff, 796 kph for landing)
  • Good selection of suspended armament options
  • Gets air to air missiles, unlike the British equivalent Sea Hawk FGA.6
  • Has extremely favourable matchmaking even with air to air missiles
  • Very manoeuvrable
  • Very good energy retention
  • Very good for destroying ground vehicles
  • 4x20mm cannons,high rate of fire and good amount of ammunation
  • Perfect plane to grind through german air tech tree

Cons:

  • No combat flaps
  • The bomb holders greatly decreases planes manoeuvrabiliy
  • MK1 and MK2 AP rockets are ineffective

History

Already by the end of WW2, Hawker began working on their first jet-propelled aircraft as the new jet propulsion technology became available. As a basis for their new aircraft, they took the Hawker Fury and began adapting it to house a turbojet engine. The project received the designation P.1035.

As work went on, the attention the project garnered initially from the Air Ministry and the Admiralty was rather low and eventually dropped completely, forcing Hawker to continue development of the aircraft under a private venture. During the development process, the initial design of the aircraft underwent significant changes and the resulting version was designated as P.1040.

However, as Hawker’s aircraft offered good range, the Navy ordered three prototypes to be built in May 1946 and subsequently put through evaluation. Testing and tweaking of the design continued throughout the late 1940s until the first production orders for the aircraft, dubbed Sea Hawk, were received in November 1949.

The first Sea Hawks entered service with the FAA in 1953, with the remaining over 500 machines entering service by the mid-1950s. The Sea Hawk’s service life is primarily marked by their extensive use during the Suez Crisis in the late 1950s, where they successfully proved themselves.

As one of the last modifications of the type, the Sea Hawk FGA.6 was developed to incorporate changes from the previous FB.3 and FGA.4 ground attack variants and combine them with the new Rolls-Royce Nene Mk.103 engine which provided a greater power output.

In the early 1960s, the British Navy almost completely abandoned the use of Sea Hawk and a handful of other vehicles being used in a limited number of secondary roles until the end of the decade. However, the aircraft was still in service by some countries like West Germany, the Netherlands and India. In fact, India continued to operate Sea Hawks well into the 1980s!
