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.
