Hi!

In the book "The british aircraft specification file" at pg 46, there is an artist impression of the Armstrong Whitworth A.W. 21, a monoplane fighter designed for the specification F.7/30. Unfortunatly I don't have a scanner, so I can't post the picture, sorry. I'd like to know more about this aricraft and I ask if there are anyone who have more information or drawings about the A.W. 21.

Thank you for your help and, as always, sorry for my english ;)

Thank you robunos for the very interesting pictures and for the technical data. It's a shame that the plane has not been further developed: compared to the Scimitar seemed much better.
