Форум Breguet's Aircraft Challenge
The RNAS had a requirement for a two-engined bomber and sent representatives out to France to investigate the possibilities. The idea was to produce a two-engined Henry Farman or a Nieuport design powered by two 110 hp Clergets. Brush produced the first of an order for twin-engined Farman Astrals. After trials of the first one at Hendon which were unsuccesfull, the rest of the order was cancelled.
The single example had the serial 9251 (the rest of the order 9252-9260 was cancelled) and was powered by two 100 hp Anzani engines. No markings are visible on pictures, only on the fuselage can be seen the falcon-crested badge of Brush (almost invisible in the original picture in the magazine, this is the 'dot' almost at the nose).
