Contrary to the previous comment regarding the use of the Hispano-Suiza 8A V-8, one example of the BB, which was named the BH was tested using this powerplant. In addition, the Spanish company Compañía Española de Construcciones Aeronáuticas (CECA), built a further 12 examples powered by the Hispano engine.

The BB was designed and built for specifically the British military, namely the RFC and the RNAS. Originally conceived to take the 110 h.p. Le Rhone 9J a shortage of this engine meant the majority of the 94 built were powered by the 80 h.p. Le Rhone 9C. There was talk of using a water cooled Hispano Suiza, but that was all it was, talk.
