Nieuport 24.C1
 
The Nieuport 24bis strongly resembled previous Nieuport designs but was lighter and had more power than the 17. It was aerodynamically cleaner through the use of fuselage side stringers.

Type 24bis
 
The Nieuport 24 and 27 were fitted with a round tail similar to the later type 28, whereas the type 24bis used the angular type 17 empennage.
 
As with all “Vee” strut Nieuport designs the 24bis possessed an inherent weakness of the lower wing. The sesquiplane configuration caused the wing to twist during prolonged high speed dives or abnormally violent maneuvers.
 
Shortly after its inception the 24bis was cancelled out as a first line fighter and many found their way to the rear as advanced trainers.
