The Donnet-Denhaut D.D.2 was a successful response to the call by Aviation Maritime for an armed, radio-carrying flying boat, capable of carrying a pair of bombs for use against submarines. It was quite successful and 401 were built.
It carried a wireless transmitter and it was used for maritime and anti-submarine patrol in the Atlantic, Mediterranean, and North Sea.
