A biplane fighter first taking to the skies in the summer of 1917, the Nieuport 28 was officially introduced in March 1918. By that time, however, the preferred aircraft of both French and newly arriving American units was the SPAD XIII. Nonetheless, due to a shortage of SPADs, the Nieuport 28 went into service with four American squadrons — its first official usage.
