Hawker Nimrod Fighter Plane

The Hawker Nimrod was effectively the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm version of the Hawker Fury single-seat interceptor fighter, modifications included strengthened airframe and larger fuel tanks and an extra 3.5ft added to it's wingspan. The Hawker Nimrod first flew in 1930 and entered FFA service as an interceptor in 1931 but had been re-designated as a fighter trainer by the start of WW2. The Nimrod finally ended it's service with the FAA as a weather aircraft at the end of 1941.
