The Camel had great agility in combat because of the fantastic torque of its rotary engine and because the engine, pilot and guns were all located in the first seven feet of the wooden airframe.

Hi there:
I am a WWI aircraft enthusiast and I stumbled upon your web site.  You have some good things here.  Just a comment about the spiel on the Sop Camel.  The number of enemy aircraft doesn't seem consistent with other figures I have read   i.e. The Aerodrome.  Also, while the airplane/pilots were responsible for the largest number of enemy aircraft downed, it killed over 360 of it's own pilots in accidents/mishaps. So, from the evidence, perhaps it would be reasonable to measure " the best fighter" from a number of perspectives. 
Regards, Richard

   Sopwith Camel WWI Historical Research Notes: 

Sir Thomas Sopwith
a contemporary of the Wright Brothers whose 101-year life spanned aviation history. You'll read of his Camel and Pup that revolutionized aerial combat in WWI; of his Hurricane and Lancaster, which were amongst the most successful designs of WWII; and of the remarkable Harrier "jump jet," which emerged from an industrial empire that employed up to 127,000 people.

The Camel was perhaps the best Allied fighter of WWI, successfully downing 1,924  aircraft in only 16 months of fighting. It was known for being extremely agile and for  having a fast rate of climb, and perhaps most notably, the great Baron von  Richthofen fell to the guns of a 209 Squadron RAF Camel flown by Canadian Roy  Brown in 1918.

 "Black Maria," the famous Triplane flown by 60-victory ace Lt. Col. Raymond Collishaw (the highest scoring RNAS ace and the second highest scoring Canadian ace) in 1917.

The Camel had great agility in combat because of the fantastic torque of its rotary engine and because the engine, pilot and guns were all located in the first seven feet of the wooden airframe.

No.10 Squadron was formed in February 1917 as part of the rapid naval aviation expansion program on the Western Front.

British and Empire Aces of World War I, Shores. While the Allies and their adversaries raced to outdo each other in the creation of genuinely effective fighters in WWI, it was not until 1917 that the British developed a truly effective interrupter gear, paving the way for the Sopwith Camel, S.E.5 and Bristol F.2B.

The 17th Aero Squadron in World War I. Reed & Roland. The 17th Aero Squadron flew Sopwith Camels under British command along the Western Front during the summer of 1918.

The last of the famous Sopwith fighters to enter service during WWI, the Dolphin and the Snipe built on the strong scouting heritage of the Pup and Camel. The Dolphin, a heavily-armed, negative-staggered-wing biplane, provided the pilot with the best possible tactical view for seeking the enemy. The Snipe succeeded the Camel in August 1918 and proved its superiority over virtually all other fighters.

Sopwith Camels, each carrying 250-pound bombs, take to the skies from HMS Furious - the first dedicated aircraft carrier in the world - on a raid against the German Zeppelin sheds at Tondern. Carried out on July 19, 1918, this was the first successful bombing raid ever to be launched from a carrier.

The Sopwith Camel is widely recognized as the most successful allied fighter of the Great War. Of the men who flew them exclusively, one name stands out above the rest - Major Donald R. MacLaren, who achieved 54 victories, the final nine of which were scored in this machine.

Captain R.A. Little, the RNAS' highest-scoring ace with a total of 47 victories, achieves one of the 15 attained while flying a Sopwith Triplane with No. 8 Squadron RNAS between April and July 1917

The Camel was the most successful fighting scout employed by either side in WWI, responsible for destroying 1,294 enemy aircraft. Requiring highly skilled pilots, many pilots were lost learning to fly the nimble aircraft.

The family of Sopwith fighters served England, France and the U.S. throughout World War I, with the 1½ Strutter, the Pup, the Camel the Snipe and others becoming classics of the period.

Sopwith Pup, the first proper British fighting scout that - though achieving much success after it arrived on the Western front in 1916 - saw its final combat at the end of 1917 when it ceded the skies to the even more famous and successful Sopwith Camel.

The Camel was perhaps the best allied fighter of WW I.   Its victory tally was 1,924 aircraft shot down in only sixteen months of fighting.  The Sopwith Camel was an Aces' mount which was extremely agile and had a fast rate of climb. In a controversial air battle in 1918, the great Baron Von Richthofen fell to the guns of a 209 Squadron RAF Camel flown by Canadian Roy Brown.
