well I'd like to disagree there. The strutter was the first Alli plane that could fire through its airscrew. Yes it was a bomber/Recce aircraft but when deployed for the battle of Arras they were also given escort and patrol dutys as well. However, just because it was a sopwith didn't mean it fkew like a Pup...infact if the engine konked out it flew like a brick..... the Roland too.
In WOFF I could never figure out why the Rolands...when in one flight of all Rolands....can act as fighters, but other aircraft like the Fe2b don't.
