DURING the past few years, French aircraft constructors have produced several new twin‐engined monoplanes designated as multiplace de combat in accordance with a programme set forth by the Air Ministry. The new machines—of which the three principal types are the Potez, Amiot and Dyle et Bacalan—have been undergoing tests for acceptance at the Villacoublay Field, near Paris, of which full details have not yet been divulged. The multiplace de combat machine has been designed for three principal purposes—long‐range reconnaissance, short and long‐range bombing, and combat. This means that this type of military machine must be well equipped both offensively and defensively, it must have high speed, long range and be able to carry a heavy load of bombs, or complete equipment for reconnaissance work, according to the mission on which it is being used.
