Check out this French SPAD VII circa 1916 which was flown by the French, British, and Americans flying with “Lafayette Escadrille”.
It had two .30 or one .30 and one .50 caliber machine guns. Martin got into the action with its B-10 – the first all metal, mono-wing twin engine Bomber; Hap Arnold called it the air wonder of its day.
It had many technical innovations – retractable landing gear, enclosed gun turrets, and carried 2,200 lbs of bombs!
Its fuselage was metallic, while the wings were still a hybrid of wood and fabric – but the march to all metal was on.
The P-12E sported a 500 HP P&W radial engine, could ascend to 26,000 ft altitude, and cruised at 160 MPH.
Using a mini biplane whose wings were to fall off, several were built but none saw combat – but it was an innovation well ahead of its time.
