Went into limited production as the Bristol M.1C. This might have been one of the best fighters of it's day but for the anti-monoplane prejudice of the RFC's General Hugh Trenchard. This plane had the misfortune to bare an unfortunate visual resemblance to the Morane-Saulnier Type N, with which the RFC had such a bad experience that Trenchard simply rejected the Bristol out of hand!
