Built to Air Ministry Spec. 5 /20, only two of these troop carriers were built. Designed to carry 25 troops over 400 miles and to be capable of rough ground take off and landing and also to have the ability to fly on one engine, the prototype was found to be flimsy and difficult whilst landing. The second prototype addressed some of the concerns, but it was decided to order the Vickers Victoria instead.
