The Sopwith Camel of World War 1
Sopwith Camel was introduced in 1917 and made by Sopwith Aviation Company.
The company was founded in Kingston upon Thames in the United Kingdom by Thomas Octave Murdoch Sopwith.
The Warplane was a single-seater biplane fighter, the Plane was regarded as a difficult plane to handle.
The Sopwith Camel had shot down over almost 1300 enemy Aircraft during the First World War more than any other allied fighter plane during the First World War.
The Sopwith Camel was used more as a ground attack aircraft during the later stages of the War as it became outclassed with newer technology in Air to Air Battle
The Sopwith Camel was armed with twin synchronised Machine guns and a powerful Rotary engine.
The Sopwith Camel soon became unpopular with Student pilots being a difficult Aircraft to handle.
By the mid-1918 the Aircraft was more restricted as a day fighter due to the slow speed of the plane and poor performances at high altitudes.
The Sopwith Camel played a key role in the ground-attack and infantry support aircraft during the German offensive of March 1918.
