Aero A 20

Developed in parallel with the A18 to an MNO (Ministerstvo narodni obrany, or Ministry of Defence) contract, the A 20 single-seat fighter was designed around the 310hp Hispano-Suiza 8Fb engine which was being licence-built by Skoda. Larger and heavier than the A18, and similarly flown in 1923, the A 20 was an equispan, single-bay staggered biplane of mixed construction carrying the standard armament of twin 7.7mm machine guns. Despite its appreciably more powerful engine, the A 20 proved to possess an inferior performance to that of the A18, and no further development was undertaken beyond the single prototype.
