Armstrong Whitworth A.W.14 Starling II

The A.W.14 Starling II bore no relationship to the original Starling apart from a common design origin and similar construction. It was powered by an Armstrong Siddeley Panther IIIA 14-cylinder two-row radial rated at 540hp and carried two Vickers Mk II machine guns. Three prototypes were completed and flown in 1930, one being a shore-based fighter to the requirements of F.9/26 and the other two being private venture tenders to the N.21/26 fleet fighter specification. The land-based prototype had an uncowled engine and the shipboard prototypes featured Townend ring engine cowlings. No production orders were received.
