Bristol Boarhound
Страна: Великобритания
Год: 1925


The Bristol "Boarhound" (Bristol "Jupiter") It is always of interest to trace the individuality of aircraft designers, and in the four Army cooperation machines taking part in the "Fly Past" there is an opportunity to do so. In the Bristol "Boarhound" Captain F. S. Barnwell, chief designer of the Bristol Aeroplane Company, shows his interpretation of the specification for a machine in which the requirements of work in conjunction with the Army shall be met. The high "deck" of the machine is obviously dictated by a desire to get a good view for both pilot and gunner, and air resistance has been reduced by placing the pilot's guns in tunnels on the side of the fuselage.
