The major change was a completely redesigned forward fuselage powerful computer was fitted. A new cockpit environmental system provided an output similar to that normally fitted to two-seat aircraft because of the additional demands of the radar equipment.

The challenge facing Hawker was to design an intake that could supply this amount of air during hover, yet not generate too much excess drag at high speed. The solution was a set of pressure-relief doors on the side of the intake. The doors do not have actuators, and are simply "sucked in" when the pressure inside the inlet is less than the pressure outside, such as is the case during low-speed flight and hover. As it turned out, the total efficiency of the inlet is improved at all airspeeds since the doors operate completely automatically.
