Possessing a strong family resemblance to the R.11 but
having an increased wing span and area resulting from
the introduction of an additional bracing bay on each
side, an enlarged rudder and 300hp Hispano-Suiza 8Fb
eight-cylinder water-cooled engines, the R.14 was
also a three-seat escort fighter. It had an armament of
one 37mm Hotchkiss cannon on a rotating mounting in
the forward gunner's cockpit and paired Lewis guns in
the dorsal gunner's cockpit. The fuselage was essentially
similar to that of the R.11, and one example of the
R.14 was completed in August 1918. No details of the
subsequent testing of this aircraft have survived.
