Description Edit | History

The Sopwith 7F.1 Snipe was a British single-seat biplane fighter of the Royal Air Force (RAF). It was designed and built by the Sopwith Aviation Company during the First World War.

The Snipe's structure was rather heavier, but much stronger, than earlier Sopwith fighters. Although not a fast aircraft for 1918, it was very maneuverable, and much easier to handle than the Camel, with a superior view from the cockpit - especially forwards and upwards. The Snipe also had a superior rate of climb, and much better high-altitude performance compared to its predecessor, allowing it to fight Germany's newer fighters on more equal terms.

The Snipe proved to be a potent fighter despite its brief involvement in the war, performing a variety of duties. The Snipe gained a significant number of combat victories in its short operational history during the war. Selected as the standard postwar single-seat fighter of the RAF, the last Snipes were retired by that service in 1926.

As Described In

Red Baron: The Snipe is an improved Camel. Fast, highly maneuverable and durable, the Snipe is the best British fighter of the war.

Knights of the Sky: The Snipe was built to replace the Camel. Based on the "look" of the Camel, the Snipe was faster, could fly higher, handled more easily, and had improved view from the cockpit. Like the Camel, its twin synchronized Vickers machine guns were complemented by the Snipe's ability to carry four bombs beneath the fuselage. What more could you want?
