You may have noticed (!) that I'm including wingplan views on a lot of these aircraft in this family. As the wing design is such a vital feature of these aircraft I thought it best to include to allow a better visualisation of the aircraft, and provide a better sense of how the designs developed.

H.P.72A "Flatfish" The second project was a radical new design, drawing on post-war information on swept wings gleaned from Arado. This design was definitively allocated a "cover" designation, and was unofficially named the "Flatfish" at HP. https://i.imgur.com/bZumuA2.png The H.P.75A was quickly d...

In June 1945 HP started design work on a replacement for the Avro Lincoln, seen as being six years into the future. Work on two alternate designs was commenced, and they were allocated HP model numbers in January 1946 H.P.75A https://i.imgur.com/iGRmzZf.png Continuing with the earlier 70 ton jet pus...

https://i.imgur.com/LzYkpOJ.png The third design was a further developed pusher, fitted with 8 Metro-Vick jet engines, and a modified wing for higher-speed flight. With the lower power available from the initial version of the F.2 engines, take-off augmentation with RATOG would be required. The 75 ...

https://i.imgur.com/c019JDJ.png Developed from the H.P.75 Manx, the second design was a tailless pusher equipped with a rider-plane. The fuselage very deep but narrow, allowing for carriage of the bomb-load stacked in two rows, 5 high. Unfortunately the original HP general arrangement diagram does ...

HP 75 ton bomber proposals In 1942 the RAF called requested designs for 75 ton and 100 ton superbombers. HP responded with 3 designs in the 75 ton class that they referred to internally as 70 ton bombers. None of these designs were given HP design numbers. After being lost from sight for many years...

After the initial work on the H.P.75 HP, along with most other British heavy aircraft designers, provided designs for the RAF 75-ton and 100-ton su...

Developed H.P.75 airliner Even though the H.P.75 transport programme lost official support in 1944, an airliner development of the aircraft was published in the Italian magazine "L'Ala" in 1949 as the illustration for an article on canard developments. https://i.imgur.com/1wrwdGG.png There appears ...
