Folland Fo.116
Страна: Великобритания
Год: 1943

Not directly linked to the Fo 108, but clearly showing the same family traits, was the Fo 116. Two of these bulky, fixed undercarriage, beasts were ordered against Specification E28/40 (OR.101) of February 1941 for an aircraft to carry deck-landing experiments at high weights. The specification also called for the type to have the ability to undertake reconnaissance, torpedo attack and dive-bombing sorties. The wing on the Fo 116 was variable incidence, moving from 4 to 15 degrees. Construction of two Centaurus III-powered examples (DX160 and DX165) was commenced at Cheltenham, but abandoned.
