HISTORY OF WORLD WAR I BIPLANE FIGHTER SOPWITH CAMEL
Discover the English warplane or British biplane fighter of the Royal Flying Corps used by the Triple Entente during the development of the World War 1, among other war conflicts.
The Sopwith Camel was a prohibitive fighter for novice pilots, however, it was one of the most popular fighters of the so-called War of the Kaiser and the favorite mount of many allied allies.
The first order to the factory of this fighter required the use of the 130 hp Le Rhône engine, but later the contract awarded to Sopwith requested that the Clerget 9B be installed as a motor.
The machine gun engines were very powerful. Between July 4, 1917 and November 11, 1918, the Sopwith Camel shot down a total of 1,294 enemy aircraft, although later studies by British writer Chaz Bowyer reveal that the total incursions of the fighter Sopwith Camel caused around 2,800 victories , a figure much higher than that achieved by another plane during the entire war. Only the German triplane Fokker Dr. I of the Red Baron overtook the Camel in maneuverability.
