It was one of the first single-seaters to be used as a fighter aircraft , although it was not possible to fit it with an effective forward-firing armament until the first British-designed gun synchronizers became available later in , by which time the Scout was obsolescent.
Single-seat fighters continued to be called "scouts" in British usage into the early s. The design was initially given the works number SN.
The design was an equal-span single-bay biplane with staggered parallel-chord wings with raked wingtips and ailerons fitted to the upper and lower wings, which were rigged with about half a degree of dihedral , making them look almost straight when viewed from the front.
The wing section was one designed by Coanda which had been used for the wings of the Bristol Coanda Biplanes. The fixed horizontal tail surfaces were outlined in steel tube with wooden ribs and the elevators constructed entirely of steel tube.
It was evaluated by the British military on 14 May at Farnborough , when, flown by Busteed, the aircraft achieved an airspeed of By this time two more examples works nos.
After repairs, including a modification of the undercarriage to widen the track , Carbury entered it in the London—Paris—London race held on 11 July but had to ditch the aircraft in the English Channel on the return leg; while in France, only one of the two fuel tanks had been filled by mistake.
Carbury managed to land alongside a ship and escaped but the aircraft was lost. Completed shortly after the outbreak of war in August , they were requisitioned by the War Office.
Given Royal Flying Corps serial numbers and , one was allocated to No. Impressed by the performance of the aircraft, the War Office ordered twelve examples on 5 November and the Admiralty ordered a further 24 on 7 November.
The period of service of the Bristol Scout — marked the genesis of the fighter aircraft as a distinct type and many of the earliest attempts to arm British tractor configuration aircraft with forward-firing guns were tested in action using Bristol Scouts.
These began with the arming of the second Scout B, RFC number , with two rifles, one each side, aimed outwards and forwards to clear the propeller arc.
Some of the 24 initial production Scout Cs for the RNAS, were armed with one or occasionally two Lewis machine guns, sometimes with the Lewis gun mounted on top of the upper wing centre section in the manner of the Nieuport 11 ; more common was a very dubious choice of placement by some RNAS pilots, in mounting the Lewis gun on the forward fuselage of their Scout Cs, just as if it were a synchronized weapon, firing directly forward and through the propeller arc, an action likely to result in serious damage to the propeller.
Types using this gear including the B. The attempt to use the gear for synchronising a centrally mounted gun on the Bristol Scout failed and tests, which continued at least until May , resulted in the abandonment of the idea and no Vickers-armed Bristol Scouts were used in operations.
None of the RFC or RNAS squadrons operating the Bristol Scout were exclusively equipped with this aircraft and by the end of the summer of , no new Bristol Scout aircraft were being supplied to the British squadrons of either service, the early fighter squadrons in RFC service being equipped instead with the Airco DH.
Once the Bristol Scouts were no longer required for frontline service they were reallocated to training units, although many were retained by senior officers as personal "runabouts".
Two manufactured, identical to the modified Scout A except for having half-hoop-style underwing skids and an enlarged rudder.
Similar to the previous Scout B. These aircraft used a small-central opening, "dome-fronted" cowl that were only intended for use with the 80 hp Gnome Lambda seven cylinder rotary engine, curiously the rotary engine choice the Royal Naval Air Service favored.
The last, and most numerous production version, the Scout D , gradually came about as the result of a series of further improvements to the Scout C design.
The aircraft slowly took form at his home, then in Poughkeepsie, New York , through the early s, when it was completed, then brought to the nearby Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome and flown once there successfully, ending in a slight mishap without injury.
The other is a reproduction Bristol Scout C, a reproduction of No. Research started in , with construction of the airframe starting in Data from Bristol Aircraft since .
