The British Pup was first introduced in 1916. Smaller than the standard fighter, The Pup had a much more reliable air combat turning ration with regards to the larger fighters. It's size made it a good choice when England began to experiment with Aircraft Carriers (and used The Pup extensively). The Pup was 19 feet long with a (multi) wing length of 26 feet. A single seater, she featured (1) 7.7mm Vickers Machine Gun. The Pup had a “low” operational ceiling of 5,600 feet. Over 1,700 were manufactured. The Pup was discontinued in general production in 1918.
