During the process of evaluation of the proposals to F.155T, De Havilland wanted to make a alternative last minute submission, and Saro was strictly prohibited from this.

Yet what if the board had instead allowed all the firms submitting, the chance of a last minute submission?

We know Saro proposed that if the weapony and or equipment was relaxed they could offer up to 3 different solutions
1. A twin Gyron Junior powered machine.
2. A single Gyron powered machine
3. An uprated version of the P.177.

I'm curious as to what alternative DH might have come up with...?

EE must have had another Lightning variant up it's sleeve. Or perhaps a version of the P.6D

Vickers.....no idea

Fairey did have a late Delta II with Red Hebe.....

AWA...?

Hawkers.....a P1125-type might have been forthcoming.
