Nieuport 11 - “Replica”

nieuport 140x82The Nieuport model 11 was a French biplane of World War I, most often referred to as the “bebe” or the Nieuport Scout.  It is famous as one of the aircraft that put an end to the first “Fokker scourge” by putting more formidable planes in the sky against the Germans.
The type reached the French front in 1916, and 90 were placed in service within a month.  During the course of the Battle of Verdun in February of that year, the Nieuport 11 inflicted heavy casualties on the enemy, forcing a radical change in German tactics.
The Allies at the time did not have synchronized guns that fired through the propeller arc , so the gun was mounted on the top wing, which was problematic when the gun jammed or needed more ammunition.
