• Morane Saulnier •

The following table lists the Morane Saulnier aircraft operated by the RFC (early versions with Gnome engines and then Le Rhone).


French manufactures issued each aircraft with a construction number, which in most cases ran sequentially commencing at 1.


In addition a further sequential 'series number' was issued, commencing at 1 for the first aircraft of each series. Similar types were considered to be one series: for example the Morane L and Morane LA were both considered to be the 'L' series.


French military aircraft also received a military serial or SFA (Service des Fabrications de l'Aviation) which was shown on the tail of the aircraft, prefixed by a letter code indicating the manufacturer, 'MS' being used for Morane Saulnier.


The system caused much confusion to the RFC and as a result the available records do not allow a complete cross-reference of RFC serials to French identities.


RFC serials 587-598 were Morane G/H Monoplanes built by Grahame-White in the UK
