Bristol F.2 IRL

The Bristol F.2 was a biplane fighter designed in Britain and used during World War I. Despite having two seats, the robust construction and powerful engine allowed it to carry out aerial maneuvers on par with single-seat fighters, with its agility earning it a favorable reputation that kept it in service into the 1930s.

The Bristol was armed with one synchronized, fixed, forward-firing .303 Vickers machine gun and a single Lewis Gun on a swivel mount over the observer's rear cockpit. [1]

The F.2B first saw combat during the Battle of Arras in April 1917 - a month known as "Bloody April" where aircraft losses were extremely high. After this time pilots began to recognize the strengths of the F.2 and flew accordingly. 5,329 aircraft of this type were produced between 1916 and 1927.


Battlefield 1Edit

This item has a Codex entry: "The Brisfit"


The Bristol F2.B is featured in Battlefield 1. It was first seen during the EA Play livestream. A more detailed view from the cockpit and of the F2.B in combat is shown in the Battlefield 1 Gamescom Trailer. The F2.B appeared in the Customization screen during the Open Beta, but was not used in the field.

SingleplayerEdit

The Bristol F2.A is controlled by the player in Friends In High Places. The player controls the plane in the first, second and last levels of the War Story, "Test Flight", "Total War", and "Forte et Fidele". In the third level, "Fall From Grace", the plane is unusable.

The plane is armed with a Lewis Gun and Rocket Pods, and players can use a scope by pressing the secondary fire key. The plane uses a simplified flight model, and repairs much faster. The player cannot leave the plane, nor park it.

Several British Bristols are later seen in "Forte et Fidele", engaging German Air Force.

Several F2.B fighters can be seen providing support in Storm of Steel and at the beginning of Through Mud and Blood. One Bristol is seen in The Runner, flying over Fort Nöbet.

MultiplayerEdit

The Bristol F2.B is the main attack plane of the Royal Flying Corps and Royal Italian Army.
