Of similar construction to the F.E.3, the F.E.6 was built
in 1914 and was powered by a 120hp Austro-Daimler
six-cylinder water-cooled engine. Standard R.E.5 components
were used for the wings, which were of equispan,
and the tail unit was carried on a cantilever boom,
without bracing wires. The F.E.6 was flown at Farnborough
on 14 November 1914 but this may have been its
only flight, and, if fitted, the COW gun that it was designed
to carry was not fired.

I can confirm that the picture is of a Zepplin interceptor.
One of about 12 or so built by Bristol.

I suspect the picture is incorrect

That sure looks like the tractor type, RAF S.E.2 to me.
I thought that the F.E 2, F.E.8 & F.E.6 were all pushers?

gastank and a Lewis gun capable of firing upwards into Zeppelins. Used for Home Defense, 1916.

The photo appears to be the BE2C "Intercepter" with observer's cockpit filled with a gastank and a Lewis gun capable of firing upwards into Zeppelins. Used for Home Defense, 1916.

Either the picture or the 3V is wrong. I believe the picture is wrong
Do you have any comments?
