The Nieuport 27 differed from the Nieuport 24 only in minor changes in the landing gear and tailskid. Like the Nieuport 24, pilots were cautioned not to tax the lower wing with extreme acrobatics. While it was hoped that all Nieuport sesquiplanes could have been replaced by 1918, slow production of the SPAD 13 meant they continued to serve well into 1918. At least twenty-four escadrilles used the Nieuport 27, frequently alongside Nieuport 24s and SPAD 7s.

Italy bought about one hundred from the French but did not build their own since their factories were consumed with the Hanriot H.D.1. In November 1917 there was one Nieuport 27-equipped squadriglia, by June 1918 there were nine, but by late 1918 the number had declined to six. The RFC bought seventy-one and rearmed them with a Lewis gun on a Foster mount. They served autumn 1917 through April 1918. [1]
