Den Hawker Hart was a British two-seater biplane light bomber aircraft of the Royal Air Force (RAF). It was designed during the 1920s by Sydney Camm and manufactured by Hawker Aircraft. The Hart was a prominent British aircraft in the inter-war period, but was obsolete and already side-lined for newer monoplane aircraft designs by the start of the Second World War, playing only minor roles in the conflict before being retired. Several major variants of the Hart were developed, including a navalised version for the Royal Navy’s aircraft carriers. Beyond Britain, the Hart would be operated by a number of foreign nations, including Sweden, Yugoslavia, Estonia, South Africa, and Canada.

The Hawker Hart was a British two-seater biplane light bomber aircraft that saw service with the Royal Air Force (RAF) in the inter-war period. It was designed by Sydney Camm, one of the most influential aircraft designers of the 20th century, and manufactured by Hawker Aircraft. The Hart had a metal structure, a powerful Rolls-Royce Kestrel engine, and a maximum speed of 296 km/h, making it faster than most contemporary fighters. It could carry up to 226 kg of bombs under its wings, and was armed with two Vickers machine guns in the nose and one Lewis gun in the rear cockpit.
The Hart was first flown in June 1928 and entered service in 1930, replacing the older wooden Fairey Fox. It was widely praised for its performance and handling, and became the standard light bomber of the RAF. It also served as a trainer, reconnaissance, army cooperation, and naval aircraft, with several variants developed for different roles. The Hart was exported to several countries, including Sweden, Yugoslavia, Estonia, South Africa, and Canada. It saw combat in various conflicts around the world, such as the Abyssinian War, the Spanish Civil War, and the Second Sino-Japanese War.
The Hart was eventually replaced by newer monoplane designs, such as the Fairey Battle and the Bristol Blenheim, but remained in service until 1943. It was one of the most successful British aircraft of its era, and influenced the development of many other Hawker aircraft, such as the Fury, Hind, Demon, Hector, and Hurricane.
