Nieuport 10 (Macchi-built)

Nieuport 10

The Nieuport 10 was the first in the long and successful series of Nieuport "V" strutters. It was used primarily for observation, however, many were converted to single seat fighters by simply covering the front cockpit, and adding an upward firing Lewis machine gun to the center section of the top wing. When the Nieuport 11 (factory produced single seat fighter) appeared at the front, the main duty of the model 10 became that of a training machine. There were several variants of this basic design which were used not only by the French, but also by the Americans and Russians as well.
