Hawker Hind

Picture of the Hawker Hind taken from a 1938 cigarette card. The original text associated with the picture read:

HAWKER "HIND" BOMBER. The design of this biplane bomber is essentially that of the earlier "Hart" of which it is a development. It is fitted with a Rolls-Royce "Kestrel" super-charged engine giving a maximum output of 640 h.p. The "Hind" carries a crew of 2, mounts a machine-gun, firing forward, and also a Lewis gun; it has a maximum speed of 192.2 m.p.h. and a range of 393 miles. It is small, as bombers go, the dimensions being: wing span 37 feet 3 inches, length 29 feet 7 inches and height 10 feet 7 inches. The construction is all-metal of steel and duralumin with fabric covering. The "Hind" is one of the few types of biplane bomber now in service.
