P.W.S. 10

Designed by Aleksander Grzedzielski and Augustyn Bobek-Zdaniewski, the P.W.S.10 single-seat parasol monoplane fighter was the recipient of an order for two prototypes in 1929, the first of these flying in May 1930. Powered by a Skoda-built Lorraine-Dietrich LD 12Eb engine of 450hp, the P.W.S.10 was of mixed construction with a wooden wing and steel tube fuselage. Armament consisted of two 7.7mm Vickers guns. A contract was placed for 80 aircraft with deliveries commencing in the second half of 1931. Rather difficult to fly and never popular with its pilots, the P.W.S.10 was progressively withdrawn from 1933, but 20 reconditioned examples were sold to the Spanish Nationalist forces in 1936. Because of their inadequate performance they were restricted to the training role.

Has anyone seen photos of this type in service with the Nationalists during the Spanish civil war?
