Armstrong Whitworth F.K.10

Derived from the F.K.9, but embodying considerable redesign, the F.K.10 two-seat fighter-reconnaissance quadruplane retained virtually no more than the basic wing structure of its immediate predecessor. A production contract for 50 F.K.10s was given to Angus Sanderson & Company of Newcastle-on-Tyne on 30 December 1916 on behalf of the RFC, but only five aircraft were destined to be completed before the contract was cancelled. Three were ordered for the RNAS, two of these from the Phoenix Dynamo Manufacturing Company and one from Armstrong Whitworth, these eventually being completed and tested. The F.K.10 was normally powered by a 130hp Clerget 9B rotary, but at least one was flown with a 110hp Le Rhone, and armament comprised one fixed 7.7mm Vickers gun and one free 7.7mm Lewis.

Would this be an Armstrong Whitworth if so which?

Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
