Are they definitely T1s? Looks a different nose profile to me.

Id love to know what both BAE and RR are thinking 🤔 at least one (grey) has been modified with an AESA radar.

60 series export Hawk with a longer nose - neither t1 nor T2, but something inbetween. All had original UK test serials in the range ZH593 to ZH615

I remembered you having doubts about the effectiveness of the Elbit EL/M-2052 in the Mk.67s. Given its record of fitting to Tejases and Jags I would possibly add HAL into the RR - BAES mix although the Advanced Hawk seems to have died a death with its proposed HLFT-42 now touted as the replacement for the Hawk Mk.132. The sole Advanced Hawk prototype is to be used as a testbed for the '42.

All Hawk T1s will be gone by 31 March 2022
