The BAC Jet Provost was a British jet trainer aircraft that was designed and produced by Hunting Percival and later by the British Aircraft Corporation (BAC). It was derived from the piston-engine Percival Provost and became the first jet-powered trainer to be adopted by the Royal Air Force (RAF) in 1955. The Jet Provost served as a basic and advanced trainer for RAF pilots until 1993, when it was replaced by the Short Tucano.
The Jet Provost was also exported to several countries, such as Iraq, Sudan, Venezuela and Singapore, where it was used for training and light attack roles. Some variants of the Jet Provost were equipped with hardpoints for carrying rockets, bombs and guns. The most advanced version of the Jet Provost was the BAC Strikemaster, which had a more powerful engine, an improved cockpit and a strengthened airframe.
