WWI Nieuport 17Manufacture Product Number : ITA-2508
The French biplane fighter Nieuport 17 was directly derived from its predecessor, the Nieuport 11, and it adopted several improvements, such as the bigger wings and the most powerful engine, to enhance its aerodynamic and its performance. The first versions were still equipped with the Lewis 7.7 mm machine gun mounted on the upper wing. The Lewis gun was replaced, in the French Aèronatique Militaire fighters, with a more modern synchronized 7,7 mm. Vickers machine gun firing through the propeller disc. The Nieuport 17 was used on the western front from the middle of 1916 and it has significantly contributed to counterbalance the air superiority of the German fighters. The Nieuport 17 was flown by famous aces that obtained a lot of victories on it as the British ace Albert Ball and the Canadian ace W.A. Bishop.
