The Sopwith Camel was a British First World War single-seat biplane fighter aircraft introduced on the Western Front in 1917. It had been developed by the Sopwith Aviation Company as a successor to the earlier Sopwith Pup and would become one of the most iconic fighter aircraft of the First World War.

I have taken the liberty to give the Sopwith Camel four propeller blades instead of 2. Other than that, I have stayed true to the overall design to the original aircraft, although heavily simplified for aesthetics. With only one hundred parts, this aircraft is not resource intensive, and will not slow the game.
In level flight, it can reach about 50 meters per second, or about 113 miles per hour, the top speed of the Sopwith Camel. There is also a command module in the cockpit, although it can be flown with, or without anyone manning it, as it has a probe core.
Also to add, at slow speeds, the propeller will become unstable and begin to wobble. However, this problem fixes itself on its own as the aircraft speeds up.
(UPDATE: I have shortened the craft to get it closer to it’s real life proportions. I have also added three generators to the engine so infinite electricity does not have to be used.)
