|The Sopwith Snipe was designed in 1917 as the replacement for the Camel. The Snipe began production in 1918 with more
than 4500 being produced. It offered better visibility compared to the Camel. The Snipe also had a superior rate of climb. The
Snipe was powered by a single Bentley BR.2 rotary engine . It had a max speed of 121 mph compared with the Camel's 115 mph
and an endurance of three hours. Its armament consisted of two forward 0.303 in (7.7 mm) Vickers machine guns and was also
able to be armed with up to four 25 lb (11 kg) bombs, the same as the Camel. The production of the Snipe ended in 1919, with
just under 500 being built, the rest were cancelled due to cuts imposed on the British armed forces post-WWI. By the early
1920s, the Snipe began to be phased out of RAF service and by 1926, the Sopwith Snipe's career with the RAF was over.
