==Design and development==
The Oxford, built to [[List Of Air Ministry Specifications|Specification T.23/36]], was based on [[Airspeed Ltd|Airspeed's]] commercial 8-seater craft, the [[Airspeed Envoy|Airspeed AS.6 Envoy]]. Seven of these had been modified for the [[South African Air Force]] as the "Convertible Envoy", which could be equipped at short notice with a single machine-gun in a hand-operated [[Armstrong Whitworth]] dorsal turret and bomb racks.
The Oxford is low-wing cantilever monoplane with a semi-monocoque constructed fuselage and wooden tail unit. It had landing gear that is retractable into the engine nacelles and a tail-wheel.
