according to Wipi only 13 planes got into service and no combat reports are known. The pilots disliked this plane and its flight and gunnery performence was very poor.
Is this plane realy needed??
There are hundrets of other important WWII EAW planes in bad condition.
Just a thought.
1st engined flight by Richard Pearse, Waitohi, New Zealand, March 31, 1902. Karl Jatho, 1st flight, 18.August 1903, Hannover-Vahrenheide, real controlled flights.
The Wrights, 1st flight, 17. December 1903. They wasnt the 1st, but still claim this!
