    The French certainly did have a penchant for these odd "three-quarter-biplane" constructs with the very small, stubby lower wings. Several interwar designs reflect this trend which I haven't seen in other air forces (probably for want of looking on my part). Great pics, though...and thanks for sharing.

    Always known them as sesquiplanes. Probably the most famous example of WW2 would be the Fiat CR.42?
