About this Product
Lack of good mid-war alternatives forced French authorities to try to extend the lifetime of the Voisin 3 and 5 two-seat pushers. The 300hp Hispano-Suiza engine was desired, but shortages forced the Voisin 8 to use the 220hp Peugeot 8Aa instead. This larger and heavier engine necessitated a larger airframe. The Type 8's served from November 1916 through late 1917, when they were phased out in favor of Voisin 10's. This model reflects the variant armed with the Hotchkiss 37mm cannon, which was used for ground attack and escort duties. (The more standard machine-gun armed model is also available.)
