Overview
 
WWI British 2-seat fighter equipped with Sunbeam Arab engine. The appearance in 1917 amongst the equipment of the Royal Flying Corps of the new two seats Bristol F.2B Fighter marked one of British aviation's greatest successes. Together with other outstanding designs of that time - the Camel, the S.E.5a, and the D.H.4 - it enabled the R.F.C. to gain its desired advantage in the air. However the delivery of new planes to squadrons was constantly up against a number of problems, not the least of which was the lack of engines in great enough quantities. The Rolls Royce Falcon engine installed in the F.2B was well proven, but Rolls Royce which at that time was developing several types of engine simultaneously, physically could not make enough engines, as were called for by all the various designs produced by the aircraft companies.
