      It was A Wright Flyer.

      The brothers did build a few flying machines, and had been trying to get the Army to buy since 1905. Sales to National Governments was always a goal for them, and also corresponded with the miltaries of UK, France and Germany that same year

      Wrights did the first armed aircraft. As built the Brothers always referred to them as fliers, though after 1909, they gave them different names,
      like this reproduction

      called by them the 1909 Military Flyer, the first one the Signal Corps bought

        As you can see here, frisco17 said "the Wright Flyer." This means exactly that, not the Flyer II, the Flyer III, the Wright Model A or the Wright Model B. From what I read of their work this name is given to only one plane which sits in the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. Have you seen it?

        No guns but I believe it has a rack for a cruise missle.

          Getting back to topic, how could you vote against a versatile, durable weapon like this that would strike terror in the enemy and win any big wheel monster "truck" competition?

              It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge.

                Dont forget this version of the Mk tanks. I believe it is the earliest use of Chobham armour.

                  That's a neat picture, and a pretty convincing WW1 tank. I have yet to see Warhorse, though I have heard good things about it.
