The BAC Strikemaster is a jet-powered training and light attack aircraft, produced for the Royal New Zealand Air Force.


The BAC Strikemaster is a single-engine, two-crew, subsonic trainer and light attack aircraft produced by the British Aircraft Corporation (BAC), and used by the Royal New Zealand Air Force. Developed out of the Hunting Jet Provost, the Strikemaster featured more powerful engines, strengthened airframe, wing hardpoints, and revised fuel and communication systems. It could operate from short, rough air strips, and carry up to 3,000 pounds of bombs, rockets, gun pods, napalm or fuel tanks. The type was first flown in 1967, and first equipped the RNZAF in 1972.


The BAC Strikemaster is an inexpensive light strike platform available to ANZAC and BLUFOR decks. It carries a 7.62mm machine gun and a pair of Mk 77 napalm bombs. The Strikemaster is a cost-effective choice for area denial operations, or to flush infantry and vehicles out of cover. It carries no ECM or air-to-air missile compliment, so is vulnerable to attack from long range SAMs and enemy fighters. Given its 50-point cost, these drawbacks are far from prohibitive.
