    Breguet XIV A2 and B2 versions

    Multitasking - not really good at it but ..... while working on 87 Days I've also been working on this pair. In addition to painting, I still need to do the air files, panel and a few odds and ends. The Bregeut built A2 will be French and has a fixed lower wing, Darne MGs and no bomb rack. The Michelin built B2 will be American and has full span lower wing flaps, Lewis MGs, fuselage windows, and bomb racks.

    Breguet XIV A2


    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 2 Aircraft - World War I

    Description: Breguet built XIV A2 of French escadrille Br.11, November 1917


    The Breguet XIV


    This aircraft was the outstanding French day bomber/reconnaissance aircraft of World War I. The Breguet XIV A2 reconnaissance version and the Breguet XIV B2 bomber equipped at least 71 French escadrilles on the Western Front by November 1918 and were also used by units in Serbia, Greece, Macedonia and Morocco. The prototype flew for the first time on 21 November 1916. Following successful deployment by the French, the type was also ordered by the Belgian Army (40 aircraft) and the United States Army Air Service (over 600 aircraft). Around half the Belgian and US aircraft were fitted with Fiat A.12 engines due to shortages of the original Renault 12F. By the end of World War I, some 5,500 Breguet 14s had been produced. and some 8,000 of the type were built up to 1926. Production was spread over eight manufacturers; Breguet, Michelin, Renault, Farmen, Darracq, Bellanger, Schmitt, and SIDAM.

    The model, textures. panel and air files are by Captain Kurt. The pilot figures were developed from Wolfi's freeware Japanese pilot .fsc source file. The prop spinning texture is by Kelticheart.

    Breguet XIV B2


    A new entry has been added to Add-Ons Library, category CFS 2 Aircraft - World War I

    Description: Michelin built XIV B2 of USAS 96th Aero Squadron

Production was spread over eight manufacturers; Breguet, Michelin, Renault, Farmen, Darracq, Bellanger, Schmitt, and SIDAM.


    The A2 reconnaissance version was followed into production by the B2 bomber version in the summer of 1917, the latter differing in having Breguet-designed automatic full span flaps on the lower wings, lower wing mounted bomb racks, and transparent panels in the sides of the observer's cockpit.
