As with the monoplane it was powered by 2 x 400 h.p. Armstrong Siddeley Jaguar IVC engines. After the inconclusive trials which did show that the monoplane had a better performance in terms of rate of climb, service ceiling and speed although lacking the overall weight capacity of the biplane it was proposed to sell both to Imperial Airways. Imperial were committed to other types and so the biplane was promptly broken up.
