BAC 145/164/166/167 Strikemaster

The Strikemaster was developed from the BAC 145 Jet Provost. It has the same airframe but is powered by a 15.2kN Rolls-Royce Bristol Viper Mk 535 turbojet engine. It has eight underwing hardpoints, enabling it to carry up to 1,360kg of weapons, including Matra launchers each for 18 x 68mm SNEB rockets or other rocket packs, four 230kg ballistic or retarded bombs, 250kg or 500kg or smaller bombs, napalm, and other stores (plus the two 7.62mm FN machine-guns). This makes it suitable for counter-insurgency combat operations, reconnaissance (with the BAe/Vinten five-camera pod), pilot and weapon training.

The first Strikemaster was flown on 26 October 1967 and 155 have been built (including a few for store against possible new orders.
