As a successor to the Pup, the Sopwith Camel entered Royal Navy squadron service in July of 1917. It was designed to help the British gain control of the skies over the trenches of WWI. The Sopwith Camel accounted for 1,294 victories, more than any other Allied aircraft type.
The Sopwith Camel was the first British fighter to mount twin synchronized .303” Vickers machine guns in front of the cockpit. A fairing surrounding the gun installation created a hump, giving the Camel its name.
