The Boeing GA-1 Model 10 was an armoured Triplane.
Designed in 1919, it was powered by a pair of modified Liberty engines driving pusher propellers.
The first of the Engineering Division’s heavily armoured GAX series (ground attack, experimental) aircraft, the ponderous airplane was intended to strafe ground troops while remaining immune to attack from the ground as well as from other enemy aircraft.
It was so well armoured that its five-ton weight proved excessive.
