Fury

Цельнометаллический одноместный биплан с открытой кабиной и неубирающимся шасси. Спроектирован в КБ фирмы "Хаукер эйркрафт" под руководством С. Кэмма. Первый полет опытный образец "Фьюри" совершил 25 марта 1931 г. Выпускался серийно с апреля 1931 г. заводами фирм "Хаукер" и "Дженерал эйркрафт" в Англии, а также по лицензии в Югославии (заводы "Икарус" в Белграде и "Змай" в Земуне). Всего построено 300 экз. всех модификаций. Самолет состоял на вооружении в Великобритании - с мая 1931 г., в Югославии - с июня 1932 г., в Иране - с 1933 г., а также в ЮАС. Вооружение 2x7,69.
Основные серийные модификации:
  - "Фьюри" I с мотором "Кестрел" VS;
  - "Фьюри" II с мотором "Кестрел" VI и обтекателями на колесах;
  - экспортная для Ирана на базе "Фьюри" I, но с мотором "Меркьюри" VIS2 и увеличенным вертикальным оперением;
  - экспортная для Ирана с мотором "Хорнет" S2B-1G;
  - "Фьюри" IA - экспортная для Югославии на базе "Фьюри" I, но с обтекателями колес;
  - "Фьюри" II югославской постройки с мотором "Кестрел" XVI, свободнонесущими стойками шасси, увеличенным радиатором, дополнительным бензобаком.
Участвовал в боевых действиях в Испании в 1937 г. В Великобритании снят с вооружения в 1939 г., но южноафриканские части применяли "Фьюри" в Восточной Африке в 1940-1941 гг. против итальянцев. Югославские истребители принимали участие в отражении вторжения немцев в апреле 1941 г. и были практически полностью уничтожены. В Иране "Фьюри" состояли на вооружении до конца 1942 г.

Hawker Fury I и II

История создания истребителя-биплана Fury началась в 1927 году, когда Министерство авиации выпустило техническое задание F.20/27 на истребитель-перехватчик. Хотя представленный компанией "Hawker" прототип был оснащен звездообразным двигателем Bristol Jupiter мощностью 450 л. с. (336 кВт), как того требовало задание, фирме не удалось получить контракт на серийное производство. Тем не менее полученный при его создании опыт пригодился компании, когда дневной бомбардировщик Hart продемонстрировал, что истребительные силы Британии вооружены устаревшими самолетами. Понимание этого факта привело к ускоренной разработке (в инициативном порядке) прототипа нового истребителя, которому "Hawker" присвоила название Hornet. На этой машине Сидней Кэмм решил отказаться от использования звездообразного двигателя, в котором было так заинтересовано Министерство авиации, и установить рядный V-образный Rolls-Royce F.XIS (позднее названный Kestrel). Этот самолет и стал прототипом Fury, купленным Министерством авиации, которое присвоило ему новое обозначение в соответствии принятой тогда в ВВС номенклатурой.
  Красивый самолет с обтекаемыми обводами, Fury Mk I был первым истребителем британских ВВС, развивавшем в горизонтальном полете скорость 322 км/ч. Первым в мае 1931 года его получила 43-я(истребительная) эскадрилья.
  Это был одностоечный биплан с металлическим каркасом и полотняной обшивкой, за исключением носовой части, обшитой листами из легких сплавов, и шасси с хвостовым костылем. Машина оснащалась двигателем Rolls-Royce Kestrel IIS мощностью 525 л.с. (391 кВт). Как и Hart, истребитель Fury в целях испытаний или по требованиям зарубежных заказчиков мог оснащаться различными типами двигателей, включая Armstrong Siddeley Panther, Bristol Mercury, Hispano-Suiza 12NB и 12X, Lorraine Petrel, и Pratt & Whitney Hornet S2B1G. Были построены в общей сложности 160 Fury Mk I, за которыми последовали еще два самолета, снова созданных в инициативном порядке. Это были Intermediate Fury и High-Speed Fury, разрабатывавшиеся в соответствии с техническими требованиями F.7/30 и F. 14/32, соответственно. В результате Fury Mk I оснастили более мощным двигателем Kestrel VI и обтекателями на стойках шасси. Эти самолеты, под которые выпустили техническое задание 6/35, были запущены в серию под обозначением Fury Mk II, и первые из них поступили на вооружение 25-й (истребительной) эскадрильи в начале 1937 года. Хотя Fury Mk II демонстрировали на 10% большую максимальную скорость, за это пришлось заплатить снижением дальности полета, несмотря на увеличение запаса топлива.
  Оба варианта Fury оказались привлекательными для зарубежных заказчиков и строились для ВВС Испании, Норвегии, Персии, Португалии, Южной Африки и Югославии.
  Британские ВВС получили 98 Fury Mk II, которыми оснастили шесть эскадрилий. Fury несли службу в боевых подразделениях до замены их на Hurricane в 1939 году, и даже после начала Второй мировой войны некоторое количество Fury Mk II использовалось для обучения. Три эскадрильи южноафриканских ВВС в Западной Африке использовали эти самолеты на начальном этапе войны. Югославские Fury приняли участие в боевых действиях во время германского вторжения в апреле 1941 года.

The H. G. Hawker Engineering Co., Ltd.
Kingston-on-Thames

  DURING the war period the name Sopwith became a household word. Sopwith machines in enormous numbers, and covering a great variety of types, were in use in many theatres of war. After the war the old Sopwith firm ceased to exist, and out of it grew the present H. G. Hawker Engineering Co., Ltd., which, under the joint managing directorship of Mr. T. O. M. Sopwith and F. Sigrist, has worthily upheld the splendid traditions of the old Sopwith Company.
  During the last two or three years Hawker machines have been adopted very extensively by the British Royal Air Force, while not inconsiderable numbers have been sold abroad. The present greatness of the firm may be said to have started with the "Fury," a single-seater interceptor fighter, which in turn was made possible by the introduction of the Rolls-Royce Kestrel engine. The combination was one which resulted in a quite exceptional performance.
  The interceptor fighter is, as its name implies, intended to intercept and fight approaching enemy aircraft, and for this purpose the greatest possible rate of climb is required in order to get to the raider's altitude in the shortest possible time. When that altitude has been reached, the interceptor fighter must have sufficient speed and manoeuvrability to be able to tackle the raider effectively. These qualities of climb and speed at height are achieved to a remarkable degree in the "Fury."
<...>
  As there appears to exist a good deal of confusion concerning the various Hawker types, it may be of assistance if we outline briefly the purposes for which the various types are used.
  Beginning with the "Fury," this was, as already mentioned, the first modern Hawker aircraft, and in its standard form is the interceptor fighter. For use as a fleet fighter, operating from aircraft carriers, a slightly modified version known as the "Nimrod" is now produced, and various carriers are now in process of being re-equipped with this machine.

NEW AND EXPERIMENTAL

Hawker High-Speed "Fury"

  This machine is an interceptor lighter, designed to chase and intercept enemy raiders, a function which demands that the aircraft shall be able to attain its operational altitude in a very few minutes, and shall have the highest possible speed at that altitude in order to overtake the raider. The Hawker "High-speed Fury" is a development of the "Super Fury," which had a speed of about 250 m.p.h. It is not known what the speed of the new machine is, but with the "Goshawk" engine it should be a good deal higher. The machine is quite small, having a wing span of 30 ft, only. The engine is steam cooled.


Hawker Day and Night Fighter

  Built by the firm as a private venture, the Hawker Day and Night Fighter shows unmistakable Hawker "lines." It is a biplane of 34 ft. wing span, and has its leading edge condensers supplemented by a retractable radiator. As in the case of the other machines of this class, the engine fitted is the Rolls-Royce "Goshawk."
25 марта 1931г.: первый полет в Брукленде, Суррей, под управлением флайт-лейтенанта П. У. С. Балмэна выполнил первый серийный истребитель Hawker Fury I (K1926). Он стал первым британским истребителем, превысившим в горизонтальном полете скорость 200 миль в час (322 км/ч). В мае 1931 года самолеты данного типа поступили на вооружение 43-й эскадрильи британских ВВС. На снимке - K1927, второй из трех предсерийных Fury I.
The Fury, K1930/G-BKBB, is a reproduction built by Viv Bellamy at Land’s End Airfield in Cornwall, and powered by an original Rolls-Royce Kestrel engine.
Hawker Fury I K2876 was delivered to the RAF in December 1932. Part of a batch often aircraft, K2876 entered service with 3 FTS and then passed to 6 FTS. In January 1940 the Fury became 1719M and presumably became an instructional airframe. Total production of the Fury I for the RAF amounted to 117 aircraft, built between 1930 and 1935. The type was allocated to Nos 1, 25 and 43 Squadrons and remained in first-line service until 1939.
HAWKER FURY ROLLS-ROYCE KESTREL ENGINE
THE "STAR TURN": The Hawker "Fury" (Rolls-Royce "Kestrel") was demonstrated in masterly fashion at Brooklands by Mr. Sayer, Hawker's Test Pilot.
Fury I was second of three prototypes, K1926-7-8. First prototype flew in July 1930 with a 525-h.p. Kestrel IB, did 202 m.p.h. at 10,800 ft. Second and subsequent Fury Is had the 550-h.p. Kestrel IIS.

Prototype Kestrel-engined Yugoslav Fury was identical to standard Mk. I, but Yugoslav-built production models presumably had Hispano-Suiza.
Самолет с кодом G-ABSE, известный как "промежуточный Fury", был построен в 1932 году в качестве экспериментальной машины. На него ставили по очереди несколько вариантов мотора Kestrel, а также обтекатели колес, шасси с консольными стойками, колеса Dowty с внутренней амортизацией и электрические бомбосбрасыватели.
Fury G-ABSE was company hack used for development work which led, among other things, to Fury II.
Fury with 750-h.p. Hispano-Suiza 12NB was another Yugoslav version, with twin 7.7-mm. Spandaus and a 222-m.p.h. top speed at 15,100 ft.
High-Speed Fury
High-Speed Fury (K3586) had swept-back top wing and outer-plane "V" struts, first flew 3rd May 1933 with 600-h.p. Kestrel S giving a top speed at 10,000 ft. of 245 m.p.h. Span was 29 ft. 6 1/4 in.

THE HAWKER HIGH-SPEED "FURY" modified since its last appearance in public. A later type engine has been fitted and the performance shows a marked increase.
GETTING UPSTAIRS: Rapid climb is a first consideration in an interceptor fighter. The Hawker "Highspeed Fury" is seen here on its way upwards. The engine is a steam-cooled Rolls-Royce "Goshawk" 12-cyl. Vee type. This machine will be seen in public for the first time at the R.A.F. Display at Hendon next Saturday.

Much Fury II development was done on K3586, which was finally converted to a standard Fury II and delivered to No. 43(F) Squadron in September 1934. Withdrawn again by mid-1936, it became a Merlin test-bed with Rolls-Royce.

A SERVICE RECORD: Figures recently issued by the Air Ministry show that the flying time of the machines engaged in the 1935 Air Exercises aggregated 3,839 1/2 hours, which is an increase of 37 per cent, over the figures for 1934. High-altitude fighting was an outstanding feature, combats between light bombers and fighters being fought at about 21,000 ft. This photograph taken during the Exercises, shows such an engagement. The fighters are Furies and the picture was secured from a Gordon.

Yugoslavia
WINNER IN THE SINGLE-SEATER CLASS: The Hawker "Fury" (Rolls-Royce "Kestrel") and its pilot, Capt. Sintic, of the Yugoslav Air Force. The "Fury" won the race at an average speed of 201 m.p.h.
Fastest of all the Furies was yet another Yugoslav model with twin Vickers, cantilever undercarriage, reduced wing area (250 sq. ft), 745-h.p. Kestrel XVI, and 252-m.p.h. top speed at 16,000 ft. Similar version illustrated here had four guns - note that the wing guns are minus their fairing covers.
FOR YUGO-SLAVIA: Despite the enormous amount of work created by the expansion of our own Air Force the industry is still able to cope with orders from abroad. This aerial photograph shows one of a batch of the latest Hawker Furies for Yugo-Slavia. Fitted with a Rolls-Royce Kestrel XVI and Dowty cantilever undercarriage it has a speed of 250 m.p.h.

Norway
Фирма "Hawker" довольно энергично продвигала истребители Fury на экспорт. В 1932 году Норвегия оценивала один самолет со звездообразным мотором Armstrong Siddeley Panther IIIA (фото). Этот вариант собирались строить по лицензии, но мотор Panther оказался неудачным. В течение 1935 года Португалия получила три истребителя Fury, оснащенных моторами Kestrel IIS.
Prototype Norwegian Fury (401) first flew in August 1932 with a 500-h.p. Armstrong Siddeley Panther IIIA having two concentric Townend rings. Length was 25 ft. 10 1/2 in., loaded weight 3,500 lb., top speed 201.5 m.p.h. at 16,400 ft. Guns were two 7.7-mm. Spandau. All other models were built under licence at the Norwegian Army Factory at Kjeller.

Persia
Persian Fury with Bristol Mercury was to have been built in Teheran with the Hornet model - anyway, Bristol delivered forty-two 645-h.p. Mercury VIS2s with cowlings to Persia. Prototype was dispatched in October 1933, did 215 m.p.h. at 16,500 ft. Length was 24 ft. 6 1/4 in.
Иностранные военные заинтересовались этим истребителем, хотя заказов было мало из-за его дороговизны и ограниченных поставок моторов Kestrel. Норвегия заказала один оценочный экземпляр со звездообразным мотором Panther, и он некоторое время летал с лыжным шасси. Однако этот 14-цилиндровый мотор был слишком тяжел, и машина оказалась не очень удачной. Самым большим иностранным заказчиком стала Персия. Для ее ВВС собрали 16 самолетов со звездообразными моторами Pratt & Whitney Hornet (фото). Большинство из них поставили в 1933 году. На следующий год Иран заказал еще шесть самолетов со звездообразными моторами Bristol Mercury VISP, так как мотор Hornet оказался ненадежным. Часть машин из первой партии возвратили в Кингстон для замены моторов. До совместной оккупации Ирана советско-британскими войсками в 1941 году дожило несколько Fury с моторами Mercury.
