Farman Shorthorn - Gunner front - Pilot rear

kpat
The Farman Shorthorn with the gunner moved to the front position for more effective usage of the gun. This model has a Scarff Ring which attaches the gun to the plane and allows the gun to rotate and elevate as needed. There is a Lewis .303 calibre machine gun. The aerial version didn't need the cooling system which the ground troop version did. There is a fairly detailed Renault 8 cylinder air-cooled engine and a 2 bladed propeller. The link below will give you a great animation of how the Lewis gun worked. #2_bladed_propeller #biplane #Farman #Farman_Shorthorn #Lewis_machine_gun #machine_gin #Renault_engine #Scarff_Ring
