The Nieuport 27 saw comparatively little com-bat and the AEF appear to have made the greatest use of it. Over 180 are thought to have been purchased, most being used as 'pursuit trainers'.
The genuine Nieuport 27.Cl had the plain tailskid. The central, vertical, bracing wire to the mid point of the spreader bar where the two half axles were pivoted, and the simplified skid, distinguished the Nie 27 from the Nie 24.
