This odd-looking machine, which looks somewhat like a Dornier flying boat, was built by Saunders-Roe to meet the same requirement as the Short Sunderland. It was intended to have power turrets in the nose and the tail, as well as machine guns firing from the peculiar-looking dorsal station ahead of the tail fin. The RAF accepted the Sunderland instead.
