Salmson 2 A2: All in the Family.

Salmson 2 A2: All in the Family.

This Salmson was one of the best and certainly one of the most produced French reconnaissance aircraft of WW1. A neat well-armed aircraft designed in 1916 to replace specially the British-designed Sopwith 1/2 Strutter. As its round nose denotes that it was powered by the household archetypical 9Z engine -one of the rare water-cooled radials built in quantity. Manufactured in large numbers,the Salmson was used intensely in the War and belong.

It has certainly a cute nose.
