The Bristol F.2 Fighter, often referred to simply as the Bristol Fighter or "Brisfit," was a British two-seat biplane fighter and reconnaissance aircraft of World War I. Renowned for its agility, speed, and durability, it was one of the most successful fighters of the war.

Introduced in 1917, the Bristol F.2 featured a powerful engine and a flexible design that allowed it to be used effectively in various roles, including reconnaissance, ground attack, and as a fighter. Initially, it had a mixed reception due to its different flying characteristics compared to single-seat fighters, but pilots soon appreciated its strengths. The most common variants were the F.2B and the faster and more powerful F.2B Mk II. The aircraft's success lay in its robust construction, excellent performance, and the effectiveness of its rear-mounted machine gun, which provided superior defensive capabilities. The Bristol F.2 Fighter's significant role in the aerial campaigns of World War I and its innovative design make it a subject of great interest for military aviation historians and model collectors, particularly those focused on the evolution of fighter aircraft and World War I aviation.
