de Marcay 2 C1

 

demarcay2c1


The initial design was based on the use of an eight-cylinder Liberty engine, but the difficulties experienced with this engine led to revision of the design to take a 300 hp Hispano-Suiza 8Fb eight-cylinder water-cooled engine as the de Marcay 2 Cl. An unequal-span staggered single-seat biplane with horn-balanced ailerons on the upper wing only and an armament of two synchronised 7,7-mm Vickers machine guns, the de Marcay 2 Ci was completed early in 1919. Although the fastest fighter participating in the 1919 Service Aéronautique contest held at Villacoublay, no pro-duction order was placed for the de Marcay 2 Cl and only one prototype was completed.
