Designed as a torpedo bomber, the Short 310A-4 had a powerful Sunbeam Cossack engine but still could not carry a torpedo and an observer and was flown from the rear cockpit for centre of gravity reasons. The type was urgently sent to the Mediterranean in 1917 but enjoyed little success. Photo from: San Diego Air & Space Museum
