Description

All you need to play with the airplane: a special base, a flying stand, and a deck of Maneuver and skill cards. The Nieuport 16 was an evolution of the Nieuport 11, reinforced and modified to fit a more powerful engine with a top speed of over 100 mph. It was armed with a single Lewis machine gun on its upper wing and, when used in balloon busting, with two sets of Le Prieur rockets. Aéronautique Militaire unit N 124 – best known as “Escadrille La Fayette,” in honor of the French hero of the American Revolutionary War – was composed mostly of American volunteers who soon became a great inspiration to many aspiring pilots.
