Short Brothers of Rochester built several airplanes but they are most famous for their large seaplanes.
Production aircraft from the Great War or shortly thereafter include:
- Only the prototype Type 200 was built. It used a 260hp Sunbeam engine and was completed in May 1917.
- Two Short North Sea Scout, aka Type B, were built for recon and Zeppelin attack. Based on the 320, it added a Davis 2pdr gun.
- Three prototype Short Shirl torpedo-carriers were completed in 1918, but the type did not enter production.
- Two prototype N2B seaplanes were tested in spring of 1918, but they lacked performance and the type was cancelled.
