The zenith of British fighter-biplane design was attained by the private-venture Fantome of 1935. The name Feroce was conferred later.An entrant for the Belgian fighter competition to find a successor for the Fairey "Firefly II" It had provision for a French Hispano-Suiza 12crs moteur canon with an Oerlikon 20mm gun firing through the airscrew hub and 4 rifle-bore Browning guns as made in Belguim by the Fabrique National.One aircraft only was supplied to the Royal Air Force for evaluation.The prototype in Belguim crashed on trials close to their monarch King Leopold.It did not go into production.
I have two clear 8 X 10" photos sent to to me pre-war by Fairey Aircraft Co. that I could scan to you if required.

Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
