Bristol F.2B Poland 5 Esk by WS-Clave Bristol F.2B Poland 5 Esk by WS-Clave
The Bristol F.2B, also known as the Bristol Fighter, ‘Brisfit’, or ‘Biff’ entered service on the Western Front in 1917.  Although it was a two-seater it proved a strong opponent to enemy fighters.

The F.2B was used widely in WW1 by the RFC and RAF, and by many countries post-war from Argentina to Sweden as fighters, trainers, fighter-bombers and reconnaissance aircraft.

The F.2B was armed with 2 or 3 x 7.7mm machine guns - 1 x Vickers and 1 or 2 x Lewis guns.

This example is an F.2B of 5 Eskadra Polish Air Force 1920.

Only two of Polish "Brisfits" had RR Falcon engines. Most of them (no. 20.3 to 20.105) were equipped wiwt 8-cyllinder Hispano-Suiza engines.

Yes, and it was a pain to redraw the whole nose section to fit the new engine too!
