J.Herris - Weird Wings of WWI /Centennial Perspective/ (70)
Seeing the success of the armored German aircraft, in 1918 France issued a requirement for a lightly armored ground-attack two-seater with T.S.F. and camera. The Vendome biplane and the Salmson 4 were designed to this requirement. The Salmson 4, powered by a 260 hp Salmson water-cooled radial, was basically an enlarged, armored derivative of the Salmson 2 reconnaissance aircraft. The Salmson 4 was selected for production in May 1918 and 12 were assigned to front-line escadrilles by the armistice. No others were built and it was withdrawn from service in 1920.
