The RAN ordered two Series HS 7648’swith delivery in May and August 1973. Like the RAAF aircraft, these two machines were powered by Rolls-Royce Dart RDa.8 engines and also had a similar navigator’s position. They were initially used in the transport role replacing Dakotas with 851 Squadron based at HMAS Albatross at Nowra, New South Wales. Between 1978 and 1981 the two aircraft were extensively modified into Electronic Warfare (EW) trainers. Fitted with electronic countermeasures (ECM) jamming equipment and chaff dispensers, the aircraft were tasked as airborne trainers to simulate a hostile EW environment. The Squadron was disbanded in August 1984 and the aircraft transferred to 723 Squadron, also based at Nowra, where they continued performing similar tasks. The aircraft were decommissioned at Nowra on 23rd June 2000 by which time they had flown 23,910 hours and carried out 23,050 landings. It was scrapped the following year.

This model aircraft is made from die-cast metal and include extensive detailing. It is similar in quality to Gemini Jets, NG Model, Phoenix Models, JC Wings and Aviation400.
