Mosca MB bis


| /

The Mosca-Bystritsky MBbis was a fighter aircraft developed and used by the Imperial Russian Air Service during the First World War.

The MB and MBbis were both constructed largely of wood with fabric covering. The wings were mounted in the shoulder position with gaps between the roots and the fuselage, allowing easy access to the cockpit and improved view for the pilot, (pilot and observer). For transport on the ground the wings could be folded to lie along the fuselage sides and the tail-planes folded forward and upwards.
