Miles M.20

Second prototype built to Specification N1/41 for a shipboard fighter with jettisonable undergarriage so it could be used from catapults on CAM ships (Catapult Aircraft Merchantmen), however these ships had no flight decks so the aircraft had to be ditched into the sea after just one mission.
U-0228 first flew April 8, 1941 and later serialed as DR616.
