Bristol Bullpup

Bristol Bullpup


The Bristol Bullpup, also known as the Bristol Type 107 was a British fighter prototype in the 1920s.

Design and development

With a construction based on that of the Bristol Bulldog (Type 105), the Bullpup had been ordered in prototype to participate in the Air Ministry's F.20/27 contest in 1928. Its engine was the Bristol Mercury IIA, with 480 hp, and it was evaluated in the spring of 1929. The Bullpup prototype was subsequently fitted with a Jupiter F type head with twin compensator rods for the penthouse heads. Trials with this engine were carried out at Martlesham in 1929.

Operational history

During its evaluation period, it was found to be smaller, faster and more maneuverable than the Bulldog. However, it was nevertheless deemed to afford an insufficient advance from the Bulldog design to warrant series production and the sole prototype was used as an engine test aircraft until it was scrapped in 1935.
