The Breguet 5 was a cannon-armed version of the Breguet-Michelin bombers intended for escort, intercepting of enemy fighters, and ground attack. Two hundred were built before it was realized they were even slower than the bombers and useless in fighter combat. Some were converted to bombing or ground attack duty. Variants include the Breguet 6, Breguet 9, and Breguet 12.
The RNAS purchased fifty-nine and assigned them to Wings 3 and 5, where one assumes their service lifetime was brief.
