The Morane-Saulnier M.S.406 was a French fighter aircraft developed and manufactured by Morane-Saulnier starting in 1938. It was France's most numerous fighter during the Second World War and one of only two French designs to exceed 1,000 in number. At the beginning of the war, it was one of only two French-built aircraft capable of 400 km/h (250 mph) - the other being the Potez 630.

Morane-Saulnier MS.406

Designed to meet a 1934 French Air Ministry requirement for a single-seat fighter, the MS.406 was first flown on August 8th, 1935 (as the MS.405). With more than 1100 examples produced, the MS.406 formed the backbone of the French Air Force at the beginning of WWII. The aircraft was small and manoeuverable but lacked the power and armament of the German Bf 109Es that it typically confronted. Loses were high during the Battle of France and despite efforts to destroy remaining airframes, large numbers were captured by advancing German forces and used by the Luftwaffe as trainers.
