Built as a private venture to meet Air Ministry specification 21 /23 for a torpedo bomber it was in competition with the Handle Page Harrow and the ultimately successful Blackburn Ripon. The Buffalo was found to have poor handling qualities, but was later converted into a sea plane and used at the Marine Aircraft Experimental Establishment at Felixstowe.
