This package includes 2 iconic aircraft that fought during World War I:

  • The Sopwith Snipe
  • The Albatros D Va

The Sopwith Snipe was designed in 1917 as the replacement for the Camel.

The Snipe began production in 1918 with more than 4500 being produced. It offered better visibility compared to the Camel. The Snipe also had a superior rate of climb. The Snipe was powered by a single Bentley BR.2 rotary engine . It had a max speed of 121 mph compared with the Camel's 115 mph and an endurance of three hours. Its armament consisted of two forward 0.303 in (7.7 mm) Vickers machine guns and was also able to be armed with up to four 25 lb (11 kg) bombs, the same as the Camel. The production of the Snipe ended in 1919, with just under 500 being built, the rest were cancelled due to cuts imposed on the British armed forces post-WWI.

The Albatros D.Va

The Albatros D.V was a fighter aircraft used by the Luftstreitkräfte (Imperial German Air Service) during World War I. The D.V was the final development of the Albatros D.I family, and the last Albatros fighter to see operational service. Despite its well-known shortcomings and general obsolescence, approximately 900 D.V and 1,612 D.Va aircraft were built before production halted in early 1918. The D.Va continued in operational service until the end of the war.(from Wikipedia)
