The single seater fighter was designed for battle on the Western Front for the Royal Flying Corps to counter attack the German Fokker Scrouge in World War One.
The first plane first flight wason July 15th 1915 and the Aircraft was armed with a 7.7mm Lewis gun.
The fist DH-
The Aircraft was more than a match for the German Fokker Eindecker and used frequently in the Battle of the Somme as familiarity with the planes controls became more apparent with the pilots and finding the Aircraft very manageable during flight campaigns.
With better more powerful Aircraft being designed and introduced during the later phases of the battle, the Aircraft was used very little and used as a advanced trainer towards the End of the War.
