G1059. The Bristol Badger of 1921 shown here with polygonal cowl. Badger was the official name of the F.2c, and it was fitted with a 320hp Jupiter II engine. It first flew in February 1919, and was one of the first machines to use the Jupiter engine. It showed the trust the company's chief designer, Frank Barnwell, placed in Roy Fedden, the newly appointed and brilliant engine designer. When the Air Board purchased the machine, a Dragonfly engine was substituted.
