British Aerospace Hawk 100

British Aerospace Hawk 100 is an advanced two-seat weapons systems trainer with enhanced ground attack capability. The aircraft provides fighter lead-in training and navigator and weapons systems operator training. The nose of the Hawk 100 is re-profiled to accommodate additional sensors and avionics systems, including a forward-looking infrared (FLIR). The aircraft has seven hardpoints on the wings for weapon payloads. Short-range air-to-air missiles can be mounted on the wingtip missile launchers.

The Hawk LIFT (Lead-In Fighter Trainer) derived from the Australian Hawk 127, is intended to provide training for new-generation combat aircraft such as the Eurofighter Typhoon or Saab Gripen, and features substantially improved cockpit and avionics.

British Aerospace Hawk 200

The British Aerospace Hawk 200 is a single-seat, lightweight multi-role combat aircraft for air defense and ground attack missions. The first Hawk 200 demonstrator actually flew in May 19, 1986, well before the Hawk 100 demonstrator, but was lost two months later in an accident that killed test pilot Jim Hawkins, who either became disoriented or ironically blacked out while demonstrating the aircraft's agility. 

 

The Hawk 200 has the Adour 871 engine, combat wing, and some of the other combat kit of the Hawk 100, but along with the single seat configuration, which resulted in an entirely new fuselage from the cockpit forward, also features a still taller tailfin; an optional fixed in-flight refueling probe; and the Northrop-Grumman AN/APG-66H pulse-Doppler X-band multimode radar, with ten air-to-air and ten air-to-surface modes.

 

The Hawk 200 has eleven external store points with four underwing pylons, an under-fuselage pylon, and wingtip air-to-air missile stations. The range of external stores includes air-to-air missiles, a gunpod, rocket launchers, reconnaissance pod, retarded and free-fall bombs up to 540 kg, runway cratering, anti-personnel and light Armor bombs, cluster bombs, practice bomb and rocket carriers and external fuel tanks.
