Fritz Beckhardt's SSW D.III

Fritz Beckhardt's SSW D.III

The first "pusher" to enter service during WWI was the Vickers Fighting Biplane 5. A two-seater, it was the first aircraft specifically designed as a fighter for the Royal Flying Corps. The first F.B.5 to reach France was delivered to 2 Squadron in February 1915 and 11 Squadron was equipped with F.B.5s in July 1915. Also known as the Vickers "Gunbus," it was armed with a moveable, forward-firing machine gun but it was vulnerable to attack from the rear.
