The Nieuport 20 was a development of the Nieuport 12 with a larger engine and various other adjustments. Thirty were ordered by the RFC in 1916, though only twenty-one were delivered. They served with Squadron № 1, 45, and 46, but they were disliked. By early 1917 they were pulled from the front lines and relegated to training and Home Defense.
