The following link provides a full report with lots of photos and information about one of the most famous fighter aircraft of all time and certainly one of the most important to France in WW2. I hope you enjoy and I count on your visit!

Most famous, in what way? More famous than the Spitfire/Mustang/Bf109/FW190?

Or is this just more spam crap??

Agreed, only famous if you have an interest in the French, Swiss or Finnish (like me) Air Forces. Otherwise another obscure mediocre type that was rapidly outclassed by the newer generations of fighters to come along.

Just before France capitulated, the drawings for the new 12Y51 engine were transferred to Switzerland. The Swiss put the new (+/- 1000 hp engine in their version, the EKW D3801. A Swiss version still flies at Duxford Flying Legends !, the type being retired in the 1950's.
Switzerland went on to sell the engine licence to the Soviets, and it resurfaced there, as the Klimov 100 series engines, Yak, Sturmovik.

Better than Spitfire.

At least these aircraft don't lay claim to things that they didn't do....
