The Sopwith Snipe was a British Aircraft used by the Royal Air Force. It was introduced in 1918, mere weeks before World War 1 ended. 2097 were produced for service. The last examples were retired in 1926.

Many find the the Snipe looks like someone "took a Camel and rammed it into a wall", due to the similarity to the Camel.

Two other variants are known for this plane: The Sopwith Salamander, and the Sopwith Dragon.
