The British Fleet Air Arm (FAA) operated three main types of aircraft during the 1920s and 1930s: the fleet fighter, the torpedo-bomber, and the spotter-reconnaissance aircraft. These air­craft operated from the Royal Navy's fleet of aircraft carriers, which totaled six by 1930. In 1933. the Fairey Aviation Company submitted a design which combined some of these three roles and met other specifications already issued by the British Air Ministry. The resulting air­craft, by Fairey designer Marcclle Lunelle, was known as the TSR I (Torpedo-Spotter-Reconnaissancc). It was to be powered by a 525 horsepower (hp) Rolls-Royce Kestrel v-12. liquid-cooled in-line engine. The aircraft would be capable of easily switching from a wheeled undercarriage to floats for waterbome operations.
