Letov Š.14


Built in parallel with the Š 13 and employing a similar Skoda HS 8Fb engine, the Š 14 single-seat single-bay biplane fighter employed a more conventional wing profile. Of mixed construction, with wooden wings and metal fuselage, the Š 14 was discontinued in favour of the Š 20, the prototype being rebuilt as a cantilever monoplane to participate in the 3rd Speed Contest of 1924, during which it recorded a speed of 153.13 mph (246,44 km/h).
