Wiki info about Nimrod Mk I

Official War Thunder wiki

A single-seat, carrier-borne biplane fighter of composite structure, this aircraft was created by Hawker Aircraft Ltd and based on the Hawker Fury land-based fighter. In early 1930, Hawker Aircraft Ltd built two prototypes, which initially had the unofficial name of "Norn", at their own expense. In serial production, the aircraft came to be designated the Hawker Nimrod. In early 1931, the first Hawker Nimrod prototype was sent on the aircraft carrier HMS Eagle to Buenos Aires as part of the British Empire Trade Exhibition. The first production fighter’s maiden flight took place on October 14th 1931. By 1932, Nimrod Mk.I fighters began to replace the Fairey Flycatcher in Great Britain's Fleet Air Arm squadrons, at this point still under the control of the Royal Air Force. The Nimrod first entered service with 408 Flight onboard HMS Glorious in November 1931, followed by 402, 404 and 409 Fleet Fighter Flights in 1932. The aircraft was equipped with a 590 hp, liquid-cooled, Rolls-Royce Kestrel IIS engine. The main external differences between it and the Hawker Fury were its strong landing gear legs with longer-stroke shock absorbers, its enlarged fin, increased wingspan and the extended area of its forward fuselage's metal skin. Flotation devices were fitted in the upper wing and the fuselage tail section to help the aircraft to remain afloat in the event of a forced landing on water. Stainless steel parts were incorporated in the wing and engine mount fittings to protect against corrosion. For carrier take off and landings, the cockpit was shifted forward slightly to improve visibility, although the first Nimrods to enter service were not equipped with an arrestor hook. Float-type landing gear could also be installed on the aircraft. The Nimrod’s armament consisted of two synchronized 0.303 inch Vickers Mk.IV machine guns with 600 rounds each mounted on the forward fuselage. The aircraft was able to carry up to 80 lb (36 kg) of bombs on underwing hardpoints; usually this was made up of four 20 lb (9 kg) bombs. After the first Nimrods entered service, 19 of the fighters were equipped with arrester hooks, catapult fittings, and a pilot seat headrest fairing to ease catapult strain. Subsequently, some of these modifications were made to aircraft which had been produced earlier. A total of 57 Hawker Nimrod Mk.I fighters were built.
