Head on view of Handley Page Halifax Mk.III, R9534 in prototype form, fitted with Hercules VI engines. She was tested by the Aeroplane and Armament Experimental Establishment (A&AEE) at Boscombe Down in December 1942. Here it was found that the engine's 'gills' caused drag resulting in disappointing climb rates.
