My suggestion for the Hawker Line, I know it's not official but it's a Suggestion :P
Tier 2: Hawker Demon
Tier 3: Hawker Fury - Hawker P.V.3 (Premium)
Tier 4: Hawker Hurricane Mk I
Tier 5: Hawker Hurricane Mk IV
Tier 6: Hawker Typhoon - Hawker Tornado (Premium)
Tier 7: Hawker Tempest
Tier 8: Hawker Sea Fury
Tier 9: Hawker Sea Hawk
Tier 10: Hawker Hunter (with 8,000 lbf (35.59 kN) Armstrong Siddeley Sapphire 101)
What do you guys think? Any changes that need making? I'll try producing a fan made tree once I got peoples opinions on what should and shouldn't be there.
Edit, made some changes, please do comment on them

Looks good, the Demon being a plane linking the heavy fighter tree and the Hawker tree in this example.  Alternatively, you could drop the Fury in at tier 2 and have a separate tree again or drop the Fury in at tier 3 and lose the prototype plane.

I also like the Tornado being the premium plane option as a specialist variant (or rather an earlier pre-cursor) to the Typhoon.

I think you have pretty much nailed it Pichu. I like the fact that you only have the PV3 as a prototype.

The Tornado was also a Prototype if memory serves.

Yes of course, you are correct, but I still like th fact that the main branch has no prototypes, unlike the upcoming British branches.

I'm thinking of putting the Hawker Harrier in at Tier 2, but only as part of the Attacker tree :P

Isn't a bit early for a tier 2 or even 1 for that matter ?

I think the hurricanes should begin at tier 5 ,since the mk1 spit is also tier 5 ,moving everything up a tier ,an remove the sea fury ,the tempest 5 ,with upgrade to mk2 would be a match with the p51-H ,only the temp would be a touch faster, just my opinion since the hurries did most of the work in the BoB ,and should be tier'd with the emil.

Well you will put a 1935 design against 1940 ones, i don't think it's wise to uptier the Hurri Mk I.

As the Sea Fury is concerned well i prefer have it at tier VIII, it was the ultimate Hawker prop fighter and it would be a shame not to have it

Spitfire was designed in 1935 ,prototype K5054 flew only 4 months after the maiden flight of the hurricane ,so time scale is the same ,and tbh how would they balance the 8 brownings on tier 4 ,since there the same guns as fitted to the MK1 spitfire ? ,an then theres the MkllA 2 version with 12 .303's ,just think something somewhere would end up suffering badly in an effort to balance it ,but hey ho ,in the end its down to wargaming so ill keep my nose out in future.

8x 7.7 Machine guns, that ain't much damage technically.
