Perhaps the chief criticism of the Salmson 2 was the wide separation of the pilot and observer. The Salmson 7 sought to rectify that by placing them back-to-back in a shared cockpit.
Had the war continued, thousands of Salmson 7's would have been built, but by the Armistice only twenty had been delivered to front line units.
