Overview
 
Hundreds of types of aeroplane took part in the battles over the fronts of World War One but only two deserved to be called the 'best of the best'. The first is the best fighter Germany produced in WWI, the Fokker D.VII, and the second, the most famous and most successful Allied plane, the Sopwith F.1 Camel. Each of these two aircraft became a legend. The war came to an end, and yet in the years which followed the fame of these two planes became even greater.
During mid-1916 the Sopwith Pup was the most modern RFC fighter. This aircraft had a reasonable performance but its main deficiency was its limited armament which consisted of a single Vickers machine gun. At this time, new German fighters were already being equipped with two machine guns. The Royal Aircraft Factory (R.A.F.) was the first to implement Air Ministry demands, which urgently called for twin machine gun fighters. This machine, the S.E.5, soon became another Allied legend when the R.A.F. modified it into the S.E.5a. Thomas Sopwith's company decided to improve the successful Pup design.
