The Hawker Sea Hawk was the famous Hawker aviation company's first jet fighter.
The Sea Hawk was not blessed with a high performance but proved reliable and sturdy and proved an able carrier plane for the Royal Navy. The Sea Hawk was also successful in the fighter bomber role, where it could carry bombs and rockets, backed up by its four 20mm cannons.
It served with the Royal Navy into the 60's and also with the Indian Navy.
