Equipped with the Audax in 1933, No. 2 Squadron RAF has a long history as an army co-operation unit. The Audax replaced the Armstrong Whitworth Atlas in this role and proved to be a great leap forward in capability for the unit, with the Audax being both faster than many modern day fighters as well as more manoeuvrable.

In 1937 the squadron took part in a tour of the UK with four of this aircraft. While flying part of the Scottish leg between Leuchars and John O’ Groats the weather began to deteriorate and the squadron found themselves below the cloud cover and surrounded by mountain tops. Fortunately the rest of the flight passed without incident. The squadron was then later equipped with Westland Lysanders in 1938.
