Typical HSE silliness....due to the concern about hearing loss of the Operator....a silencer was mandated for the Handle Bar Bell.

Proof of Concept trials quickly showed that the proposal of both flying and defending the aircraft when crewed solely by a rear gunner was seriously flawed.

Raleigh had seriously misinterpreted the specifications in the War Office's 1938 Fighter Competion, however, it's performance actually outstripped some of the other entries.

"We will call it.... The Chain Gun"




A chain gun is a type of machine gun or autocannon that uses an external source of power to cycle the weapon rather than diverting energy from the cartridge, and does so via a continuous loop of chain similar to that used on a motorcycle or bicycle.

You've heard of the Popemobile? Well, this version is for when the Pope wants to have a day off and go out in plain clothes.
