H.King Armament of British Aircraft (Putnam)

Fury. The armament potential of this very large flying-boat triplane (1918) does not appear to have been fully realised; nor is it likely that this was of primary concern during development flying. Provision was made for at least four Lewis guns.

Far more than mere 'dignity and impudence' poses, these picture shows twin Vickers guns and a jettisonable steel-tube landing gear, with the Felixstowe Fury flying-boat obliging in a like capacity. Note how distinct are the features mentioned, tiny though the Camels are.
