Russia's V.A. Lebedev Joint-Stock Aeronautics Company (Lebed) produced a variety of machines in small quantities until they hit upon success with the Lebed 12, a two-seater powered by a Salmson nine-cylinder radial engine. 225 were ordered in July, 1916, of which about 218 were delivered. [1]

The V.V. Slyusarenko Aviation Company of Petrograd produced twenty Lebed 12s.[5]

The Lebed 12bis was an identical airframe re-engined with a 150hp Hispano-Suiza V8, and two were built in 1917.[6]
