Allan,

                IIRC, the S.E.5a wasn't favored as much because the
Hisso/Viper took much longer to warm up than the Clerget in the Camel.
Wouldn't have been an issue is enough warning was given, I suppose, but one
of those "sneaky bastards" who came over as a singleton and tried to slip in
to bomb might require an immediate defensive takeoff.

                                Mike
