Mureaux 110 / 111 / 113 / 115 / 117
 

 

The ANF Les Mureaux 110 originated with a French air ministry requirement for an aircraft to replace the Breguet 19 in Armeé de l'Air service in the "R2" reconnaissance role. The Mureaux 110 first flew in 1931. Two slightly different variants, the 110 and 111 were presented to the air force for evaluation, and were soon ordered into production.
 
 
The first mass-production version was the 113 in 1933, of which 49 examples were purchased.

This was supplanted in production by the 115 in 1935 and the 117 later than year. The major difference between the 117 and the earlier 115 was that the 117 had improved aerodynamics. Both these series were given light bombing capability as well. By the outbreak of World War II, the ANF Les Mureaux 117 equipped nine Groupes Aériens d'Observation.

The Mureaux 115.R2 was a two-seat fighter. A Mureaux 115 model was the first French aircraft destroyed by the Luftwaffe.
 
 
In early 1938, the Ilmavoimat / Maavoimat test team evaluated the ANF Les Mureaux 117. It was assessed as a rugged but somewhat dated aircraft similar to the Fokker C.X the Ilmavoimat already had in service and without any real multi-role or STOL capability.

 

 

 

A total of 285 military reconnaissance aircraft were built.
