WWI R.E.3 and R.E.5 aircraft were powered by 120 hp Austro-Daimler designed engines made by Arrol-Johnston. Later planes were fitted with Beardmore-built engines.

A water-cooled six-cylinder Austro-Daimler engine was enlarged and improved by Frank Bernard Halford, producing the 230 hp (170 kW) Beardmore-Halford-Pullinger (BHP). This engine was further developed by Siddeley-Deasy as the Puma. This work was done with Arrol-Johnston in Dumfries.
