Royal Aircraft Factory B.E.2f

The Royal Aircraft Factory B.E.2f was the designation given to existing B.E.2cs that had been modified to the B.E.2e standard by giving them the unequal span wings and modified tail of the newer design. Originally these aircraft had been redesignated as B.E.2es, but this caused a certain amount of confusion in the field, as they were visually identical to the B.E.2e but had the same internal layout as the B.E.2c. In October 1916 the RFC decided to reclassify aircraft with the B.E.2c fuselage and B.E.2e wings as the B.E.2f. The RFC placed orders for at least 1,169 B.E.2cs. It isn't known how many of these aircraft were completed at B.E.2fs, or how many were converted later.
