The aircraft had been around for some time prior to the arrival of World War 1 (1914-1918) but interest in warplanes on the part of the various air services of the world was growing. As such, when war in Europe broke out in July of 1914, the aircraft was already in service. However, it woudl be the scenario of war that would push the combat warplane to new 'heights', going from unarmed monoplane and biplane scouts to fully-armed, fully-fledged gunnery platforms encompassing as many as five wing mainplanes. In the end, the biplane reigned supreme and there proved many wartime classics - the best known being the British Sopwith Camel series. The Inter-war period that followed the First World War would introduced new developments in aviation all its own.
