Armstrong-Whitworth A.W. 19

  Designed as a private venture to Air Ministry Specification G.4/31, this machine shows some unusual features in the arrangement of its cockpits. It will be seen that the fuselage completely fills the gap between the wings, and that the pilot is placed ahead of, and on a level with, the upper wing, from which position he has an excellent view in all essential directions. The engine is a Siddeley "Tiger" of 670-700 b.h.p. The wing span of the A.W.19 is 49 ft. 8 in.

ARMSTRONG WHITWORTH

<...>
  Exceptional field of vision is also a feature of the A.W. 19, which is a general-purpose military machine of the biplane type. The pilot is placed forward of, and on a level with, the leading edge of the top plane. The observer is located aft of the wings, in a well-screened cockpit. The engine of the A.W.19 is a 725 h.p. Siddeley "Tiger." The machine has been designed to carry the very large variety of equipment demanded of a general-purpose aircraft. It has a wing span of 42 ft. 2 in. (12.85 m.). The lower main plane is swept upwards at the roots to give ground clearance for the large items of armament carried.
