With the development of the H.P.80 Victor, HP stopped work on the design family that started with the "bloody paralyser" of 1914.

H.P.90 Hermes I With the success of the Hastings, in 1948 HP looked to restart work on the initial short-body Hermes. https://i.imgur.com/2r43m4y.png Rather than being a continuation of the Hermes design however, HP took the track of rather civilianising the Hastings.
