BAe HAWK T1 MK53 Indonesian Air Force Papermodel 1:42

The BAE Systems Hawk is a British single-engine, advanced jet trainer aircraft. It first flew in 1974 as the Hawker Siddeley Hawk, and subsequently produced by its successor companies, British Aerospace and BAE Systems, respectively. It has been used in a training capacity and as a low-cost combat aircraft.
Operators of the Hawk include the Royal Air Force, notably the Red Arrows aerial display team; as well a considerable number of foreign military operators. The Hawk is still in production with over 900 Hawks sold to 18 customers around the world.


In April 1978, Indonesia, seeking to increase its aerial capabilities, placed the first of multiple orders for the Hawk.[58] The Indonesian Air Force received more than 40 Hawks in the 1980s and 1990s;[59] In June 1991, BAe and Indonesian Aerospace (IPTN) signed an major agreement for collaborative production of the Hawk, and more orders of the Hawk were anticipated.[60] Further Hawk exports were eventually blocked due to concerns over Indonesian human rights, particularly in East Timor.[59]
During the 1990s, allegations emerged that Hawks had been used in the Indonesian occupation of East Timor, possibly as early as 1983.[61] The alleged attacks on Timorese civilians and pro-independence groups performed by Hawks generated considerable controversy in the United Kingdom.[59] In January 1996, four protesters broke into a BAe factory and caused £1.5 million worth of damage to an Indonesia-bound Hawk. In a subsequent trial, the four were acquitted as the jury accepted their argument of having used "reasonable force to prevent a crime"
