The Sopwith Buffalo was a two-seater designed specifically for low-level contact patrol work. Armor protected the front half of the plane from ground fire. Like the Salamander and Snipe, the plane used the 230hp Bentley B.R.2 rotary. It was just about to go into production when the Armistice was signed. [1]
