The Hawker Demon was a 2 seat fighter derivative of the Hawker Hart bomber, that was found to be quicker than many of the fighters of the period. Designed by the legendary Sydney Camm, the Demon entered service in March 1931 and was still in frontline units in 1939, when they were quickly replaced as monplanes now out performed. However, over 1000 had been built - a great success for the period - and it had been an important link in the development high performance fighters through the 30's.
