Hello and welcome back to another update of Forgotten Hope 2.
We are back after a short holiday break with our first update of the new year. Today we are showing off a light bomber that saw action in the harsh environments of North Africa; the British Hawker Hardy!
The Hawker Hardy started life in the 1930s as the Hart; a small and nimble bi-plane that was used primarily as a light bomber by the RAF. The Hardy came to life later on in what was essentially a tropicalised, general purpose variant of the Hart. Combat sorties were mainly against forces in Italian-occupied areas of Africa, but the aircraft also saw action in several other countries with several other air forces. While the last official mission occurred in May 1941, some were kept in service by the British as a communications aircraft. The RAF Hawker Hardy was made by Herc.
