List of aircraft of the WWII Armée de l'Air

Aircraft of the French Armée de l'Air during the Battle of France in 1940. The nationalization of French military companies by the newly elected leftist government in 1936 severely damaged the aircraft industry. Many of the more advanced designs being worked on were seriously delayed, and development was hampered by organizational inefficiencies from the poorly implemented nationalization. In addition, there was a lack of higher output engines comparable to those installed in the latest Luftwaffe fighters. As a result, by 1938 France had placed orders with other countries to get more planes, including large orders with the U.S.
