The Great War saw the Rise of Flight, warplanes of all types designed specifically for the purpose of winning wars.



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.
