PROTOTYPE I. The new Armstrong Whitworth P. 27/32 medium bomber with Siddeley Tiger VIII fourteen-cylinder engine. The turret is of Armstrong Whitworth design.
Close-up view of the A.W.29 shows the cowled Armstrong Siddeley Tiger VIII engine and the long, narrow undercarriage legs.
APPROACH TO A PROBLEM II: Built to Air Ministry specification P.27/32 this new Armstrong Whitworth monoplane has a Tiger VIII fourteen-cylinder radial with two-speed supercharger driving a D.H. variable-pitch airscrew.
These round-the-clock photographs of the A.W.29 give an indication of the size of the aircraft. The pilot's rear view must have been practically non-existent.
Note the large trailing-edge flaps in the bottom view.
The silhouette shows clearly the thick wing tapering off sharply to the tips, the rear gun turret, and the bomb-bay doors.
