Calls for a twin-engine, cannon-armed flying boat were met by Donnet-Denhaut with the D.D.10, a handsome aircraft with engines centrally-mounted in a push-pull configuration. The plane came to late to see active service, but thirty were built. The plane carried wireless equipment as well as strong armament, though the bomb load could be sacrificed for increases in range. After the war they were converted for passenger-carrying routes.
