QUOTE (Ursulescu @ August 16, 2010 07:31 pm)
When they say "Neiuport", which ones are they referring to?

One of the games I own (Wings of War) puts Ion Muntenescu in a Neiuport 17, but the only info I can find (So Far) is that Romania used Neiuport 11's.

Also, it says he shot down 2 Fokkers....but doesn't list which ones either.


As far as I know, in the 1916 campaign (at the beginning of its participation in WW1) Romania used Nieuport 11 (“bebe”) planes as fighters - delivered from France immediately prior to its entering into the war, only a part of them armed (with Lewis MG, firing outside of the propeller’s arc).

So the 11's with the wing mounted gun....but were the 17's used, or did they make a mistake in the game?

From what I know, the 17's were used starting 1917 along with the 11's, which (the later) remained at least until the armistice the mainstay fighter of the air force.
