One of the early aviation’s most underrated pioneers was the French industrialist Emile Salmson (1858–1921). In 1890, Emile began his career in Paris, manufacturing pumps. Together with two aviation pioneers, George Canton and George Unné, he established the “Société de Moteurs Salmson” in 1910. In that year, they produced their first successful engine, an 80hp seven-cylinder radial, followed by a 120hp nine-cylinder version a year later. At a time whenengines were frequently breaking down, Salm-son's products became famous for their reliability.Despite an unsuccessful first attempt at producing an aircraft, the company was commissioned by Armeé de l’Air to produce the reconnaissance aircraft Sopwith 1½ Strutter under license. Meanwhile, they worked on improved aircraftdesigns, and later they proposed to Armeé de l’Air their “Salmson D”, with an 130hp Clerget engine. Armeé de l’Air declined, but Salmson insisted in further developing the designs. In April 1917, they introduced the Salmson 2A2, with the 260hp Canton-Unné 9z nine-cylinder water-cooled radial engine. This time, the French air force accepted the new aircraft as a replacement of the now obsolete Sopwith 1½ StrutterThe Salmson 2A2 equipped 52 French escadrilles. In addition, the American Expeditionary Forces ordered 750 aircraft to equip 10 squadrons. The total production reached 3250 items, of which 2200 were built by Salmson and the rest by Latécoère, Hanriot and Desfontainers. After the war, the Japanese air force ordered about 350 Salmson 2A2s. The Polish, Czechs and Greeks also ordered small numbers.The Salmson 2A2 was a robust, two-seated airplane, fast, reliable, and adaptable to other uses; it was used, for example, as a bomber, and even as a fighter plane. Its most important innovation was the self-sealing tanks, which contributed to the avoidance of fire on board, which was one of the main fears of early aviators.

Salmson 2 był francuskim samolotem rozpoznawczym i lekkim bombowcem z I wojny światowej oraz okresu międzywojennego. Maszyna została zbudowana w układzie dwupłata, cechowała się konstrukcją drewnianą oraz posiadała podwozie klasyczne – stałe. Oblot prototypu miał miejsce w 1916 roku, a produkcja seryjna trwała w latach 1917-1918. W jej toku powstało ok. 3200 maszyn tego typu. Napęd zapewniał pojedynczy silnik Salmson 9Za o mocy 230 KM. Uzbrojenie pokładowe składało się z trzech karabinów maszynowych kal. 7,7 mm.

Salmson 2 została opracowana przez Emila Salmsona w związku z wymaganiami  postawionymi przez francuskie lotnictwo wojskowe na nowy, lekki samolot bombowy z 1916 roku. Maszyna okazała się udana i wraz z Breguet 14 stanowiła w okresie 1916-1918 główny samolot rozpoznawczy i lekki bombowy francuskiego lotnictwa wojskowego! Przy jego budowie wykorzystano doświadczenia wyciągnięte z konstrukcji i eksploatacji samolotu Salmson 1 (SM-1). Samolot Salmson 2 cechował się bardzo dobrymi właściwościami pilotażowymi, był stateczny oraz miał dobre osiągi. W toku produkcji powstały dwie główne wersje rozwojowe: SM-2A2 (wersja rozpoznawcza) oraz SM-2B2 (wersja bombowa). Samoloty tego typu, poza Francją, służyły również w lotnictwie: Belgii, Japonii, USA oraz Polski. Z naszego lotnictwa zostały wycofane do 1923 roku.
