Camouflage & Markings – Gloster Gamecock
February 3, 2015 in Aviation
The Gamecock was developed from the Grebe, with the more powerful Jupiter engine replacing the Jaguar. The prototype was delivered in February 1925 and a further 90 production machines were eventually ordered, entering service with 23 Squadron in May 1926. Due to a high accident rate, the Gamecock had a fairly short service life, the last ones being withdrawn in July 1931.
