Potez 63.16

The Potez 63.16 was a version of the Potez 63.11 that was given a larger wing. A single example was produced by fitting the larger wing to aircraft No.114 from the first production batch of Potez 63.11s. The modified aircraft was taken on charge by the Armée de l'Air on 19 April 1940 as Potez 61.16 No.01. The German invasion of the west in May 1940 ensured that no further work was carried out on the type.
