G.Swanborough, P.Bowers United States Navy Aircraft Since 1911 (Putnam)
The Navy ordered four Model 7 seaplanes from the Aeromarine Plane & Motor Company during 1917, but accepted delivery of only the first two (A142, A143). Powered by a 90hp Aeromarine six-cylinder engine, one of these was used for the first US experiments in the dropping of torpedoes from aircraft. The twin floats were carried on independent structures to allow the torpedo to be dropped between them from the belly rack. Because of the limited payload of the Model 700 (700 lb) only a lightweight dummy torpedo could be used.
