Remembered Today:

How many 'rounds' did a fighter pilot have?

I have been looking at the combat report of Dallas and Culling in 1 (Naval) Squadron flying Sopwith triplanes in 1917. And the question has arisen about how many rounds these men had available to them in combat and how long it would take for them to expend their ammunition.

 

Do the numbers of rounds vary greatly between scout/fighter aircraft across the Great War?

 

thanks in advance.
