Phase 4 new plane?

Recommended Posts

The reason I say this is because many of the RFC scout squadrons flew it at one time or the other, so the lack of a DH5 means that you can't fly through the war, for example in 24 Sqn, which went from the DH2 to the DH5 and after that to the SE5a. It wasn't a bad aircraft, quite strong and the visibility was good because of the back-staggered top wing. They say it didn't have enough power really, but the engine was basically the same as used in the Fokker Triplane - a Le Rhone 9J, 110hp. It also only had one Vickers gun with no Lewis on a Foster mount.


Here's a link to a picture of one:
