REP Type K

The REP type K is a single-seater used by military aviation in the late summer and fall of 1914 for aerial reconnaissance.

Like many aircraft from the entry into the war, it is not really adapted to this mission, the wing depriving the pilot of a clear view downwards. Thus, the K type was quickly abandoned in favor of aircraft with a nacelle fuselage, designed as flying observatories.
