- "If you're looking for a reasonable air-to-ground strike jet, this is it. It may be an older model, but it handles real well."
- ―Harry's description of this plane in the shop.
The Hawker Hunter is a British transonic jet plane, developed in the 1940s and flown in the 1950s. It was designed to take advantage of new technologies, such as the turbojet engine and the swept wing design. The prototype broke the world air speed record at the time, reaching 728 mph (1,171 km/h). The FGA 9 model was considered the "definitive" model of the Hunter, many export versions being based on that particular model. The service life was quite incredible, lasting all the way until 2014, a whopping 60 years from its introduction. It only appears in Airforce Delta Strike, wherein it is usable by Ken Thomas.
The Hunter is quite a simple looking aircraft; it has a (revolutionary at the time) large swept wing setup, with a single vertical stabilizer sitting atop the outwardly-jutting jet engine. The aircraft has a holed-nose air intake. The craft itself is relatively small.
It's an end-game unlock. What do you expect? It's a rocket plane with mediocre stats. Definitely the lesser of the two unlocks you acquire for Ken after beating the game; the Su-17M "Fitter D" is superior to this in all aspects. Its stats are all mediocre, with the only moderately good stat being Mobility and Anti Ground. It's an end-game unlock, in short. Cheap, though.
