The Le Père Fighter 2

Captain G. LePère, an aeronautical engineer in the French Air Service, designed the LePère Fighter with a Liberty engine for production in the United States. The aircraft was intended for use as a fighter or reconnaissance machine, and carried two fixed guns firing forward, synchronized with the engine, and two Lewis guns attached to a movable Scarff ring surrounding the rear cockpit.
