Designed in 1917 by Capt. Georges LePere, a French aeronautical engineer working for the US Army Air Service, the LUSAC 11 was the result of efforts to get an American built fighter into combat as soon as possible. The aircraft was designed and built at the Packard Motor Car Co in Detroit, MI. The US government planned to order 3,525 examples. Unfortunately only 28 were ever built, none of which saw combat service. This is the only surviving example, formerly display at Musee de l'Air in Paris, France.
