The Ansaldo S.V.A. 9 was an unarmed two-seat version of the basic S.V.A. plan. Most were used as dual-control trainers, but some may have seen action as lead planes for formations of other types. The first two were sent to flight schools in May 1918.[2] After the war, some SVA 9s were constructed as trainers for the same purchasers as the SVA 10.
