Sopwith Camel WW1 Centenary Collection

Named Camel as a result of the hump shaped fairing that housed the two 0.303 in Vickers machine guns, this supreme fighter aircraft was a real handful to operate effectively, with the torque from its powerful rotary engine constantly trying to flip the Camel into a potentially life threatening spin.

If tamed, the Camel was the finest fighting aircraft yet produced and was superior to all contemporary German fighters.

During the 17 months of its operational service at the end of WW1, Sopwith Camel pilots would claim an average of 76 aerial victories each month, helping the Allied air forces wrestle air supremacy from the Luftstreitkaftr.
