Rise of Flight have a new WWI era aircraft for you, the Sopwith Strutter 1 1/2. This machine is often called one of the symbols of the era. And it is unique and legendary indeed. The Strutter turned out to be a very successful model that was manufactured far not only in Britain, but later gave birth to a whole generation of Sopwith planes sharing some of the original unchanged elements.
It took its name from the arrangement of the upper wing center section - "one-and-a-half" (long and short). There also was an air brake that was used to significantly decrease the runway needed for take-off. This outstanding two-seater saw service to the end of the war (serving for the French air force and took part in battles against German fighter groups. It also used to take off from the top of naval guns - a in word it left a bright trail in the history of aviation.
Thanks to everyone who made its creation possible by placing pre-orders. Without your help the machine would have probably remained only as blueprints.
