In spring 1917 the RFC received a new fighter, the RAF S.E.5. This fighter had potentially very good fighting capability. By the end of May in the same year, the third prototype of the S.E.5 with the new engine conducted its first flight. 56 Squadron of the RFC was the first to receive the S.E.5a in 1917. During its service some insignificant drawbacks were discovered. The British Military Command tried to solve this problem by purchasing a license for the production of the Hispano Suiza: the engine now went by the name of Wolseley Adder. The situation changed only after the appearance of the new Wolseley Viper engine whose design was based on the Hispano Suiza, but with all the Hispano Suiza"s drawbacks eliminated.
