Two-seat reconaissance aircraft. The S.XI had a similar but longer fuselage than the S.VII and staggered wings. Because of stability and engine problems it was unsuitable as a fighter, and was used as a reconnaissance aircraft. One was built as a night fighter with a searchflight fitted in front of the propellor. Over 1000 built.
