The Royal Aircraft Factory B.E.10 was to have been a version of the B.E.2c constructed with a steel-tube fuselage instead of the wooden frame of the standard B.E.2c. It was also to have had a modified rudder and fin, and shorter wings with some metal construction. The B.E.10 was designed in May 1914, and an order for four prototypes was placed with the British and Colonial Aeroplane Company (Bristol). None of these prototypes had been completed when the project was cancelled.
