Buscaylet de Monge 5/2


During 1922, Buscaylet Pere et Fils-Bobin produced a single-seat parasol fighter monoplane designed by Louis de Monge. Known as the Buscaylet- de Monge 5/2, the fighter was of metal construction with metal fuselage skinning and wooden wing skinning. Provision was made to fit auxiliary stub wings (serving to increase the wing area from 24sq.m to 32sq.m to convert the aircraft to sesquiplane configuration for the high altitude role. Powered by a 300hp Hispano-Suiza 8Fb water-cooled engine and carrying an armament of two 7.7mm synchronised machine guns, the Buscaylet-de Monge 5/2 was flown for the first time in 1923 at Villacoublay, but was declared to modern for service use, further development being abandoned.
