Bristol Fighter F.2B Mk.1


The Bristol Fighter evolved from a 1916 design by Captain Barnwell, of the British and Colonial Aircraft Company, based in Bristol. The original design was conceived to meet a requirement for a replacement to the obsolete B.E. aircraft then in service with the RFC. The designation R.2A was applied to the original design which would be powered by a 120-hp Beadmore engine. It was soon realised that the R.2A would be underpowered with the Beardmore engine and the 190-hp Rolls Royce Falcon V12 was installed in the prototype aircraft. This aircraft was designated the Bristol F.2A.
