AIRCRAFT PROFILE No.201: THE BLOCH MB 151 & 152, LEAST SUCCESSFUL FRENCH FIGHTER/ AUGMENTED DOWNLOAD
Ordered from the prototype MB 150 in April 1938, the type was found to be most unsuitable for volume production and was therefore re-jigged as the MB 151, the prototype of which had a rather disappointing performance. Accordingly, the re-engined and re-armed MB 152 took flight in December 1938 and was subsequently ordered in volume, taken on charge by the French Air Force from January 1940, just in time to be mostly destroyed in the Blitzkrieg and adopted by the Vichy regime. 18 pages in colour and b&w, including large General Arrangement drawing in colour.
