Tne H.110 was a single-seat fighter in which the pilot and engine occupied a central nacelle, and twin parallel booms attached to the extremities of the wing centre section carried the tail assembly. The all-metal H.110 was powered by a 500hp geared and supercharged liquid-cooled engine driving a three-bladed pusher propeller. A ring-type radiator was mounted in the nose of the nacelle and used an adjustable cone to regulate the airflow. The H.110, was armed with two fixed 7.5mm machine guns, Largest and heaviest of the fighters in the 1933 procurement competition. It proved slower and less maneuvrable than most of its competitors. In March 1934, it was returned for modifications, re-emerging as the H.115. After extensive testing, it was concluded that the airplane was of no more than academic interest. A magnificent flop!
