WW1 French Fighter: Nieuport 17 2016-10-05

The Nieuport 17 was a French sesqui-winged fighter aircraft of World War I, manufactured by the Nieuport company. It 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. At first, it was equipped with a 110 hp (82 kW) Le Rhône 9J engine, though later versions were upgraded to a 130 hp (97 kW) engine. It had outstanding maneuverability, and an excellent rate of climb. Unfortunately, the narrow lower wing - which marked it as a "sesquiplane" design, with literally "one-and-a-half wings" - was weak and had a disconcerting tendency to disintegrate in flight, from the lower wing's single spar construction.

This unit uses the fighter animations, please link to those animation files in your XML. The skin was one adapted from on on the Combat Ace forum.
