Description Edit | History

The Nieuport 17 was a French biplane fighter aircraft of World War I, manufactured by the Nieuport company. The type was a slightly larger development of the earlier Nieuport 11, and had a more powerful engine, larger wings, and a more refined structure in general.

The type reached the French front in March 1916, and quickly began to replace the Nieuport 11 in French service. It was also ordered by the Royal Flying Corps and Royal Naval Air Service, as it was superior to any British fighter at that time. Worthy of note is the fact that during part of 1916, the Nieuport 17 equipped every fighter squadron of the Aéronautique Militaire. By early 1917, the Nieuport was outclassed in most respects by the latest German fighters.

As Described In

Red Baron: The Nieuport is a capable fighter with adequate maneuverability. However, its lower wing is weak and will often break in a steep dive.

Knights of the Sky: The Nieuport 17 was the worthy successor to the little Nieuport Bebe. Its design corrected a few structural problems of the Nieuport 11 and sported a larger engine; it became one of the most popular aircraft among Allied flyers of the entire war. Aces like Ball, Bishop, Guynemer, and Nungesser preferred the Nieuport 17 to almost all other aircraft of the time. The Nieuport 17 was one of the first Allied aircraft to be fitted with a synchronized machine gun firing through the propeller. Some experiments were made with mounting twin guns, but performance was found to suffer from the additional weight.
