Detailing the development and operational history of the Breguet Br.19 Light Day Bomber / Trainer Aircraft. Entry last updated on 8/30/2017. Authored by Staff Writer. Content ©www.MilitaryFactory.com
A first flight was had during March 1922.
The aircraft featured a conventional biplane wing arrangement with I-type struts fitted. The upper wing section was considerably wider in span than the lower and armament ranged between three or four .303-inch machine guns. The fixed wheeled undercarriage included two main legs with heavily reinforced members. The design was intended as a day bomber and was cleared to carry just over 1,500 lb of ordnance.
The Br.19 went on to see combat service in the French colonial wars involving Syria and Morocco during the 1920s and continued to serve in a frontline role until 1934 by which point it was relegated to training duty. Around 2,700 of the series were produced.
Foreign operators beyond France eventually ranged from Argentina and Belgium to Venezuela and Yugoslavia. Some saw service as passenger haulers in civil airspace.
