Development[edit | edit source]
The Nieuport 24 was developed by Gustave Delage at the Societé Anonyme des Établissements Nieuportand was based on the Nieuport 17. Like its predecessor it was equipped with V-shaped interplane struts, but unlike it, the Nieuport 24 had an improved aerodynamic design with rounded wingtips and ailerons. It was powered by a 130 horsepower Le Rhone rotary engine. It was equipped with a synchronized 7.7 mm Vickers machine gun, the British variant was fitted with an additional Lewis machine gun, which was mounted on the top of the upper wing.
