As only a handful of the new Liore-et-Olivier LeO 45 bombers had been introduced into the French Air Force by the outbreak of the Second World War, it was too late to provide a substantial contribution during the Battle of France in the face of an invasion by Nazi Germany. As a result of the Armistice of 22 June 1940, the type continued to be manufactured and operated by the Vichy French Air Force (Armee de l'air de Vichy). The Vichy French Air Force existed between December 1940 and December 1942 and largely served to defend Vichy French territories abroad. The LeO 45 participated in combat missions throughout the remainder of the war and continued to be used for some time after its end by the post-war French Air Force. The last examples in active service were retired in September 1957.

Liore-et-Olivier LeO 451

Designed to meet a French specification for a four-seat day-bomber, the LeO451 was first flown on January 16th, 1937.
