Hunting Percival Jet Provost T.2

Advances to the initial T.1 were made by HP in 4 aircraft built as Jet Provost T.2 development aircraft.

The first T.2 was modified from the final T.1 during construction. To counter instabilty on the ground the landing gear was shortened and retained short for all subsequent marques. To ease maintenance of the engine jet pipe, the rear fuselage was modified, and to improve handling the dorsal fin was extended. After the initial test flying programme, the first T.2 was operated by No.2 FTS alongside the T.1's.
The second T.2 was retained by HP and fitted with the lager Viper11 engine to become the sole T.2B. Later, stripped back to bare metal but retaining its civil registration and having wingtip fuel tanks fitted, it embarked on a sales tour of South American air forces, before joining the RAAF on contract. No sales were made to Australia, and the aircraft was decommissioned and placed in storage. This aircraft is now an Australian museum piece and is the only T.2 remaining.
The third aircraft was also originally kept as a civil registered company aircraft. However in 1959 it was also fitted with tip tanks and sent to Portugal for testing. Again no sales were generated, and the aircraft returned to the UK, where it eventually became the prototype Jet Provost T.4.
The final T.2 adopted the tip tanks during construction, and these were then standardised for all subsequent marques. The aircraft was eventually used by the RAF for munitions testing in Aden in 1958, before travelling to Pakistan and India on a sales tour. On return to the UK this aircraft became the prototype T.3.

The Junkers J22 was the third developement, which was designed for the Fili production plant on behalve of the Soviet Forces. This aircraft was designed as a fighter aircraft and the principle design was based on the Junkers J21. As the high wing of the J21 caused construction failures in the outer flight envelope, the wing of the J22 was shouldered on the fuselage, instead of the front seat. Also the J22 got a new tail unit. Major problems were caused by missing an adequate engine for the J22 fighter. The old BMWIII engine was not strong enough for the Soviet demands. The further developement of the BMW IV, as well as the Junkers engines L2 or L5 were not available during 1923. Therefore the prototype was equipped with the unsatisfying BMW III engine. Zimmermann flew the J22 prototype, also designated as T22, first on November, 30th 1923. Further problems arised from the low wing, which did not offer enough view area towards the ground. Several modifications were performed on the design and the second prototype became available on June, 25th 1924.

The two prototypes were transfered to Fili for the Soviet type certification, but they failed to match the demands and the Soviets dropped their order for that aircraft. Type designators S22, T22 and H22 were intended for a Dessau production series, but due to the bad performance none was sold. The type designator Ju22 was intended for the Fili production line. None of these were built. (source: http://www.hugojunkers.bplaced.net/)

Love that E-767, gives me fond memories of Ace Combat :)

Thanks to Hood's assistance, I've been back and played with the Percival Provost. The export variant has internal machine guns and a larger air filter:
