The McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) T-45 Goshawk is a highly modified version of the BAe Hawk land-based training jet aircraft. Manufactured by McDonnell Douglas (now Boeing) and British Aerospace (now BAE Systems), the T-45 is used by the JMSDF, ROKN, RAN, RCN, RN and USN as an aircraft carrier-capable trainer.

Variants[edit | edit source]

  • T-45A: Two-seat basic and advanced jet trainer for the US Navy and US Marine Corps.
  • T-45B: Proposed land-based version for the US Navy, which would have been basically a conventional Hawk with a US Navy-spec cockpit and no carrier capability. The Navy had wanted the T-45B to get an earlier training capability, but abandoned the idea in 1984 in favor of less-costly updates to the TA-4J and T-2C.
  • T-45C: Improved T-45A with glass cockpit, inertial navigation, and other improvements. Existing T-45As were upgraded to the T-45C standard.
