Sopwith Dolphin and Sopwith Snipe

Good evening Gentlemen,

did the Sopwith Dolphin and/or Sopwith Snipe score any kills after the end of WW1 ?

Cheers,

Michael

Soviet Russia flew 3 Snipes, two of which were flown by decorated aces (Alexander A. Kazakov and Grigory S. Sapozhnikov) so it seems likely. However I cannot find any evidence...

Good morning Spoonfrog,

Kazakov didn't score after WW1
Sapozhnikov was killed in a Snipe but he scored his kill(s) after WW1 in a Nieuport, didn't he ?

Cheers,

Michael

I think you are right. Is there a history of the RAF during the intervention in the Russian Civil War? It would be a shame if they took the Snipes all the way to Russia and didn't manage to shoot anything down with them!

Good morning Spoondog,

according to Bob Pearson, no RAF Snipes served in Russia, or with the Polish forces opposing the Bolshevik force. Therefore it unknown how the Communists acquired the three Snipes that are known to have served with the Soviet Air Service.

Cheers,

Michael

The book "Soviet Aircraft and Aviation 1917-1941 has
Then RAF sent 12 Snipes to North Russia. Two were captured by the Reds. One named Nelly G.S. Saposhnikov was KIC in on 8 Sep 1920 on the Wrangle Front.
the other 252 it looks like it mainly served in training units until it was written off in April 1925.

C&C Vol 47 has an article "The RAF in North Russia 1918-1919" it has
Maj A Kazakov KIC in Snipe E6350 and pictures of the plane in a picture it also has another Snipe the S/N looks like E6357?
