    World War 1 Aircraft (1914-1918)

    World War 1 evolved aircraft technology along all frontiers - graduating them from their original canvas-over-wood construction to increased use of metal throughout.





    The aircraft played a pivotal role for all sides of World War 1 when the conflict began in 1914. Early forms were typically unarmed and used in the reconnaissance role until personal weapons were added. From there, the machine gun was finally fixed to these aircraft to create the "fighter" aeroplane. As the situation on the ground slowed to become Trench Warfare, it would fall to the men in the skies to provide a breakthrough and ultimately force air superiority on the enemy. Many aircraft types emerged from the fighting - scouts, night bombers, night fighters, ground attack - and these served to pave the way for new, post-war aircraft that followed.


    There are a total of (158) World War 1 Aircraft (1914-1918) in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below in alphanumeric order. Flag images indicative of country of origin.
