The Hawker Demon was a fighter variant of the Hawker Hart light bomber. It was equipped with a single .303 cal. Lewis machine gun in the rear and two .303 cal. Vickers machine guns in the front, one on each side of the nose. 232 Demons were built for the Royal Air Force, serving until just after the start of World War II. The Demon was also sold to the Royal Australian Air Force.
Entering service with the RAF in 1930, the Hawker Hart was possibly the most versatile aircraft of the 'Inter war' period. Designed by Sydney Camm as a two-seat daylight bomber, it spawned several variants including a fighter, seaplane, reconnaissance aircraft, and trainer. The Hart day bomber had a single 525 hp (390 kW) Rolls-Royce Kestrel IB V12 engine; a maximum speed of 185 mph (298 km/h) and a range of 430 miles (692 km).
