This aircraft was designed as a fighter plane in World War I by the Dutchman Koolhoven, chief designer for an English aircraft factory. The construction and materials were selected for their lightness. The 170 h.p. radial engine could reach a previously unknown speed of 220 kilometres per hour. The Bantam was a big hit at the ELTA (First Aviation Exhibition in Amsterdam) in 1919.
