The De Havilland DH.112 Sea Venom is a two-seat all-weather naval fighter built by Great Britain. The Sea Venom is a naval version of the De Havilland Venom in an attempt to give the Royal Navy its first radar-equipped all-weather fighter. It was intended as a stop-gap replacement for the Sea Hornet while waiting for the introduction of the more advanced Sea Vixen. Eight front line FAA squadrons operated the Sea Venom between 1954 and 1961. Some even saw action in Egypt during the Suez campaign in 1956. 259 Sea Venoms were built for the RN and the RAAF.

The Royal Australian Navy also had Sea Venoms. These aircraft operated from the carrier HMAS Melbournefrom 1955 thru to 1973. In addition the French Navy purchased 80 of these fighters from Sud Aviation which had a licence to build them for France. They were known by the name "Aquilon".
