Developed in the early 1930s from the already proven Hawker Hart light day bomber, the Audax was a dedicated army co-operation version. With this new role in mind it incorporated a message hook under the fuselage and lengthened exhaust pipes to reduce glare for the crew as they flew close to the ground. Although the aircraft entered service with the RAF in January 1932, the Audax was still to be found flying with the RAF during the early years of the Second World War, mostly in the Middle East. 28 Squadron, based in India, was one such Audax unit. Flying from Kohal, the squadron used the Audax for reconnaissance work and general army co-operation duties before replacing them with Westland Lysanders in 1942.

Hawker Audax Mk I

Desinged to meet an Air Ministry specification for a two-seat army co-operation version of the Hart bomber, the Audax was first flown on December 29th, 1931.

Corgi's 1:72 scale Hawker Hart series includes the Hart Day Bomber, Demon Fighter and Audax Army Co-Operation variants. The fuselage and lower wing are constructed in diecast metal while the top wing is constructed in plastic, both featuring simulated fabric stretched surfaces. The two individual tandem cockpits are fitted with a pilot figure and rear facing observer figure operating a ring mounted Lewis machine gun. Fine guage wire has been hand woven between the wings and is also seen on the horizontal stabilizer as well. Some models include wing mounted bombs, a tubular bomb sight mounted in front of pilot and a left hand side machine gun port.
