Abstract

ALTHOUGH the Hawker Sea Fury is an individual design its structure has been developed step by step from its forebears. The Hurricane had a tubular fuselage and metal‐covered wing; on the Typhoon the rear fuselage became a monocoque; while in the Tempest the semi‐elliptical wing appeared. The wing of the ‐Fury is generally similar in construction to that of the Tempest; but differs in the important point that it is continuous beneath the fuselage instead of being bolted to the sides. With the introduction of folding wings, when development was centred on the Naval Sea Fury in 1945, further modifications were made that resulted in the present wing design.
