Potez 26

Essentially a single-seat fighter version of the Potez 25 two-seat army co-operation aircraft, the Potez 26 was, in fact, the first to fly, commencing its test programme in August 1924. A single-bay, staggered sesquiplane with a narrow-chord lower wing and inclined N-type interplane struts, the Potez 26 was of wooden construction with fabric covering, and was designed to accept either Lorraine-Dietrich or Hispano-Suiza engines. The sole prototype was powered by a 450hp Hispano-Suiza 12Ha water-cooled 12-cylinder engine and its armament consisted of two synchronised 7.7mm machine guns. No series production was undertaken.
