    Gunny - I could have sworn at least one person would have said the Tripe! Congratulations!

    You're beginning to flourish in the League Table!

    The Austin A.F.T.3 Osprey was a prototype British fighter triplane of the First World War. Developed by the motor car manufacturer Austin as a replacement to the Sopwith Camel, only one was built, the Sopwith Snipe being preferred.

    In 1917, Britain's War Office issued Specification A.1.A for a single seat fighter to replace the Sopwith Camel. To meet this requirement, the Austin Motor Company, already a large scale manufacturer of aircraft, produced a design for a single-engined triplane, the A.F.T.3 Osprey. receiving a license to build three prototypes as a private venture.

    The Osprey was of conventional wood and fabric construction, with single-bay triplane wings. It was powered by a Bentley BR2 rotary engine, and featured the required armament of two Vickers machine guns and a single Lewis gun. The synchronised Vickers guns were mounted ahead of the pilot, while the Lewis gun was mounted on a movable mounting on the center section of the middle wing, where it had a very limited field of fire, with the large diameter propellor blocking any forward fire.


    Cheers

    Stay tuned for the next quiz.
