На базе LUSAC-11 в 1919 году был сделан трехместный армейский разведчик LUSAO-11 (Le Pere US Army Observation, построено две штуки) и легкий бомбардировщик LUSAGH-11 (Le Pere US Army Ground Harassment), оставшийся в единственном экземпляре.

J.Herris - Weird Wings of WWI /Centennial Perspective/ (70)
The American LUSAGH-11 was designed as an armored ground-attack aircraft, with armor protecting the crew, engine, and fuel tank. The over-size wheels were required to handle its weight. The aircraft was designed for the 475 hp Bugatti, but delay of that engine resulted in the LUSAGH-21 designed for the 400 hp Liberty. The aircraft was maneuverable despite its weight and significantly faster than German J-types that had only 200 hp.The Armistice terminated development.
