Another aeroplane designed to meet the "C3" specification, the Caudron R.11 shared many features with the Caudron R.4, though it was somewhat smaller and its engine horsepower was increased from 130-150hp to 200hp each. The fuel tanks were located on the nacelles and were cross-linked, and on later aircraft they could be jettisoned if necessary. Dual controls were rigged on later aircraft. Twin Lewis guns fore and aft were supplemented by an additional machine gun beneat the nose for downward firing. At the Armistice, 54 were in service with the French.
