You know that:

  • Morane-Saulnier was founded in 1911, at the dawn of aviation.
  • M&S was the first to design shooting through a propeller. In 1915, a modified Taube crashed on German soil and ended up in the hands of Anthony Fokker.
  • The factory test pilot was Roland Garros after whom the famous tennis centre in Paris is now named.
  • The first MS prototype flew on August 8, 1938.
  • After approval by the Air Force, 11 aircraft were produced per day.
  • The MS.406 was the most numerous aircraft of the French Air Force with 572 units.
  • The aircraft was extremely agile, but also slow compared to those of the enemy.
  • The Saulnier had a retractable radiator and this allowed the designers to reduce the vulnerability of the machine.
  • The MS.406 was also flown by 56 Czechoslovak pilots in France in 1940, shooting down over 40 enemy aircraft.
    One of the Czechoslovak pilots was Major General Karel Mrázek.
  • A major weakness of the aircraft was the cannon, which often jammed, and the machine guns, which froze at altitudes above 6,800 m.
