The SPAD XIII was powered by the new Hispano-Suiza engine, a water-cooled in-line engine developing 220 bhp and was able to reach 2,000 meters (6000 feet) in 5.5 minutes. Its armament consisted of 2 Vickers MG. Nine French factories produced around 7300 of these aircraft. In total 80 French fighter squadrons and 15 Squadrons of the U.S. Air Force equipped with the SPAD XIII stood opposite the German Air Force at end of the War.
