Description Edit | History

The SPAD S.VII was the first of a series of highly successful biplane fighter aircraft produced by Société Pour L'Aviation et ses Dérivés (SPAD) during the First World War. Like its successors, the S.VII was renowned as a sturdy and rugged aircraft with good climbing and diving characteristics. It was also a stable gun platform, although pilots used to the more manoeuvrable Nieuport fighters found it heavy on the controls. It was flown by a number of the famous aces, such as France's Georges Guynemer, Italy's Francesco Baracca and Australia's Alexander Pentland.

As Described In

Red Baron: Fast and sturdy, the Spad is a capable fighter. However, it is underarmed, as it has only one machine gun.

Knights of the Sky: As an alternative to the rotary and inline engines, a Hispano-Suiza engineer developed a new engine configuration for a new line of fighters. This configuration was the V-type and the fighters were the Spads. The first of these new engines was a 150 horsepower V-S. It was placed in a machine known as the Spad 7 in April of 1916. This plane was equipped with a forward-firing synchronized Vickers machine gun and, though less maneuverable than the Nieuports, the Spad was a strong stable gun platform, very fast with excellent climbing abilities. In the autumn of 1916, it was issued to many French and Belgian Escadrilles and by October was in service with the British as well, at a time when the RFC (in particular) desperately needed a more modern plane to replace their aging pushers.
