prototype S-16 made its first flight on February 6, 1915. The S-16 was
the first Sikorsky fighter to be equipped with a synchronized machine
gun firing through the propeller. However, the synchronization left
much to be desired. The S-16, with slight modifications from batch to
batch survived the Revolution and were operational with the Red Air
Force through the Civil War.
