Product Description

World War I Biplane Fighter

The Nieuport 17 was unquestionably the most successful of all Nieuport single seat aircraft designs of World War I. It owes its success to being a "sesquiplane" or one-and-a-half plane (it was not a true biplane). The design was a compromise between the strength of the bioplane and the performance of a monoplane. The accent was on maneuverability, and as a fighting scout the Nieuport was superb, light on the controls and astonishingly quick in the turns! With the advent of massive "dog fights" between large specialised fighter formations of both sides, the nimble little Nieuport held its own, even as it faced increasingly more powerful and better performing adversaries!
