War Thunder Sea Fury FB 11

The Hawker Sea Fury (in WT tier 4) was a British fighter aircraft designed and manufactured by Hawker. It was the last propeller-driven fighter to serve with the Royal Navy, and also one of the fastest production single piston-engined aircraft ever built. Developed during the Second World War, the Sea Fury entered service two years after the war ended. The Sea Fury proved to be a popular aircraft with a number of overseas militaries, and was used during the Korean War in the early 1950s, as well as against the 1961 Bay of Pigs Invasion of Cuba. The Sea Fury has many design similarities to Hawker’s preceding Tempest fighter, but the Sea Fury was a considerably lighter aircraft; both the Sea Fury’s wings and fuselage originate from the Tempest but were significantly modified and redesigned. Production Sea Furies were fitted with the powerful Bristol Centaurus engine, and armed with four 20mm wing-mounted Hispano mk V guns. While originally developed as a pure aerial fighter aircraft, the definitive Sea Fury FB 11 was a fighter-bomber, the design having been found suitable for this mission as well.

La Hawker Sea Fury (in WT al tier IV) fu un aereo da caccia inglese progettato e realizzato dalla Hawker. E ‘stato l’ultimo caccia elica che servì la Royal Navy e anche uno dei velivoli a pistone più velocemente prodotti. Sviluppato durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale, il Sea Fury entrò in servizio due anni dopo la conclusione della guerra. Si è rivelato un aereo popolare ed è stato usato durante la guerra di Corea nei primi anni 1950 e nella Baia dei Porci a Cuba nel 1961. Il Sea Fury condivideva molte analogie di design col precedente Hawker Tempest, ma il Fury era un velivolo molto più leggero; entrambe le ali e la fusoliera del Mar provenivano dal Tempest, ma erano significativamente modificate e ridisegnate. Il Sea Fury giunto a produzione era provvisto di un potente motore Bristol Centaurus ed era armato con 4 cannoni da 20mm Hispano mk V montati sulle ali. Originariamente sviluppato come un aereo caccia, il definitivo Sea Fury FB 11 fu un caccia-bombardiere e poteva trasportare 12 razzi e 907kg di bombe.
