In September of 1974, No. 229 Operational Conversion Unit moved to Brawdy after the closure of RAF Chivenor. This unit was later renamed No.1 Tactical Weapons Unit, and became one of two TWU's equipped with the Hawk trainer. The Hawk and Hunter equipped Nos. 79 and 234 Squadrons. There were also some unique Jet Provosts present as well. The Camouflaged T Mk 4 JP's provided Forward Air Controller training for both the fast jet trainees and for army controllers.
The Hunters were retired by mid-1984, and the Jet Provosts had gone by the end of the 80s.
RAF Brawdy was itself laid to rest by the Royal Air Force, who moved out the Hawks during 1994 and had relocated to RAF Leeming. Brawdy was passed over to the army and renamed Cawdor Barracks.
This scenery includes all the Hawk aircraft of 1 TWU in both camouflage and air defence grey schemes, depending on your preferred choice. There are flightplans included, which are representative only, but enables the aircraft to fly to bases and checkpoints around the country.
I have also included flighplans for the RAF Hawker Hunter model by John Young (acg_hunters_raf_9.zip from flightsim.com), to be used in conjunction with the camouflaged Hawks.
The scenery has been constructed using objects mainly from MAIW sceneries, which will need to be installed in order to gain the full visual experience.
A BIG thanks to Nick Black for the use of his superb AI HAwk, and to Chris A. Brown for paint' 'em!
