Potez XV A.2: Over rocky country.

The XV was a very successful two-seat observation biplane appeared just after the end of WWI. Conceived as a private venture by the Potez company, the design had its roots in the wartime SEA IV fighter designed also by Henry Potez and Louis Coroller (plus Marcel Bloch). Nothing out of the ordinary in its design; just a sturdy no-nonsense airframe powered by some decent engines. Almost seven hundred were produced, both in France and abroad under licence.
