-Acquired in 1967 by the Government of Eduardo Frei Montalva, it represented the first purchase of a weapons system, giving a new level of defensive power to the Chilean Air Force. An initial batch of 15 Hawker Hunter FGA.Mk 71 was received between September 1967 and June 1968; these were followed by three FR.MK 71A and three T.MK 72, the latter the recognition and training version, respectively. Aviation Group No. 7 based at the Los Cerrillos air base began operations with the Hunter in May 1968.
-Subsequent purchase orders of the model led to the delivery of 13 more Hunters of the models FGA.MK71, three FR.MK 71A and two T.MK.72 delivered in several lots between 1970 and 1974.
