Built to Air Ministry specification 3 /20 for an FAA replacement torpedo bomber for the Sopwith Cuckoo there was only three Hanleys built. The first (Mk I) showed poor low speed handling and cockpit sight qualities. The Mk II showed some improvement but not enough and by the time the Mk III flew which had made the required improvements the competing Blackburn Dart had been ordered into service.
