The Sopwith Camel was a British World War I single-seat biplane fighter introduced on the Western Front in France in 1917. Manufactured by Sopwith Aviation Company, it had a combination of a short-coupled fuselage, heavy, powerful rotary engine and concentrated fire from twin synchronized machine guns. The Camel was credited with shooting down 1,294 enemy aircraft, more than any other Entente fighter in the First World War.
Sopwith Camel in Southern VictoryEdit
The Sopwith Camel was a Royal Air Force fighter model used by British in Europe during the final months of the Great War. Its overall design made it an improvement over the Pup, but it never made it to Canadian front.
The Sopwith Camel had been the most famous of all Entente fighters during the First World War. When the Race invaded Earth in mid 1942, the latest human-built fighters were often compared with their chances against the Sopwith Camel in comparison with their fighters chances against Race Killercraft.
