    Brisfit....the original "multi role" aircraft, well, one designed for such, rather than being crap in one role, and pressed into another role because of it.

        The Bristol F.2 is the stand out MRA of WW1 and for most of the inter world war years. It really is at the level of the Mosquito and Hercules as examples of excellent jack of all trade designs, it was that good.

              Need to add ground attack to the Bristol's roles. They nearly wiped out a small Turkish army with machine gun fire in 1918 when used for this.
