Maybe it's a Salamander, huh? Nah, you should know. If not don't admit it.

 

I only got 9 correct! (not telling you which ones though!) :no:

I got 14, but the Zeppelin answers are wrong based on the questions.

2 wrong - I thought that the CC interuptor gear pre-dated Fokker's mechanical version - and as to who declared war on both Germany AND Serbia, I didn't have a clue!

#11 mixed me up, I should have read it closer, probably wouldn't have got it anyways. I was kinda shocked I got the zeppelin, I totally guessed at it.

Hmmm - now you all may think, I'm the René Fonck of this quiz - all 20 right! Tattaaa! Tattaaa! Tatttaaaaa!!!

 

Edit: I better add, that the "Bulldog" and that monoplane was guesswork. I'm never that good, when it's about winning money!

Well done, Olham. I missed #11 and #12. I'll give them #11 but I disagree with their version of 12. Early on the rotary's power-to-weight ratio is what made them so attractive on the scouts. When the craft is already underpowered why add the weight of a closed oil circulating system and a cooling system? Later Fokker used rotaries because he was (politically) frozen out of the inlines being Dutch, in favor of the German Albatros Flugzeugwerk. And I believe the castor oil shortages didn't become a problem until later in the war, well after the Halberstadts and Albatrosses had established themselves. Besides, I don't believe the Allies suffered the same lack of castor oil and yet they built several very good inline fighters. Or are all those pictures of SPAD's and SE5's photoshopped?

 

**edit**

I guessed at the Bristol, but it was an "educated" guess. It was a monoplane and I saw the "M" designation and figured.....

Also, am I mistaken or did the engine pictured in question 10 look more like a Clerget than a LeRhone?
