The AS Mk.7 anti-submarine version was soon replaced with anti-sub Avengers and later also with Gannets. As the Fireflies were still quite new machines, they found their new role as remotely controlled aircraft that served as targets for the new Royal Navy anti-aircraft missiles. The rebuilt machines also got a striking anti-camouflage scheme and were used mainly at Llanbedr base in Wales.
