Breguet Br.19


Light Day Bomber / Trainer Aircraft


France | 1923



"The Breguet Br.19 model series replaced the outgoing Breguet 14 in service with the French in the years following World War 1."

The French-designed and produced Breguet Br.19 was designed as successor to the stellar Br.14 model line and was developed in parallel with the Br.14. It went on to share many of the same design qualities with its early wartime cousin but included greater attention to aerodynamics. The line was powered by 2 x Lorraine-Dietrich 12D/E or Renault 12K engines.

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.
