Developed from the DH 42A Dingo, the DH 53 was built as an army co-operation plane in competition with the Bristol Boarhound, Vickers Vespa and the ultimately successful Armstrong Whitworth Atlas. Initially underpowered the two Hyenas had the Jaguar III engine replaced with the more powerful 422 hp Jaguar IV. Handling at low level was found to be difficult along with a poor cockpit view with the resulting contract going to the Atlas. The Hyenas remained at the R.A.E. until 1928.
