Romanian equipment in summer of 1917

Recommended Posts

After the French Military Mission in Romania from the winter and spring if 1917, the Romanian Army got modern equipment from the French and the British (modern planes, modern artilery, Lewis, Chachaut and Vickers machineguns, armored cars). But I want to know, what kind of airplanes and armoured cars did Romania use during that year? I have abit of an idea about some planes and an Austin armored car from 3rd series, but I want to find out more.

You were right. Thank car looks more like a Peugeot. I have a picture of a Renault Mle15 right here.

 

Also, because this is a topic related to Romanian equipment, this would be a good place for these articles:

I found another interesting image: a Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter with Romanian markings. It is known thst the Royal Romanian Aviation used Strutter planes during the 1917 campaign.
