Hawker Danecock

Based on the Woodcock II and designed by Sydney Camm, the Danecock was developed to meet a requirement of the Danish Naval Air Service, or Marine Flyvevaesenets. By comparison with the Woodcock II, the Danecock {Dankok) had unequal span wings, a slightly lengthened fuselage, a 385hp Armstrong Siddeley Jaguar IV engine and an armament of two 7.7mm Madsen machine guns. The first of three Danecocks ordered from the parent company was flown on 15 December 1925, and the licence manufacture of a further 12 was undertaken by the naval dockyard (Orlogsvaerftet) during 1927-28. These served until replaced by Nimrods in the mid-'thirties.
