Description Edit | History

The Sopwith Pup was a British single seater biplane fighter aircraft built by the Sopwith Aviation Company. It entered service with the Royal Flying Corps and the Royal Naval Air Service in the autumn of 1916. With pleasant flying characteristics and good maneuverability, the aircraft proved very successful. The Pup was eventually outclassed by newer German fighters, but it was not completely replaced on the Western Front until the end of 1917. Remaining Pups were relegated to Home Defence and training units. The Pup's docile flying characteristics also made it ideal for use in aircraft carrier deck landing and takeoff experiments.

As Described In

Red Baron: The Pup is a small, lightweight aircraft with good maneuverability. Unfortunately, it is underpowered and has only one machine gun.

Knights of the Sky: This little plane looked like a scaled-down version of the Sopwith 1 1/2 strutter and thus earned its name, which persisted despite official orders to the contrary. The Pup was beautifully simple in construction and maintenance and its flight characteristics have been called "perfect" and "impeccable." It was rugged and had excellent performance, despite its small 50 HP rotary engine. Over 1600 Pups were produced and equipped many RFC squadrons and several RNAS squadrons. But by 1915 they began to be withdrawn from frontline units. By war's end they had almost entirely vanished.
