Drawing on experience gained on the MB 150 series of fighters and its derivatives, the first versions of the aircraft were produced in 1947 by the Marcel Dassault factories. The goal was simple: to design a small aircraft, light, inexpensive and as effective as the engine would allow. The first production Ouragan flew at Mérignac on December 20, 1951, equipped the 12e Escadre de Combat the following year, and flew for two years in the colors of the Patrouille de France.

Discover or rediscover the Ouragan in a new light with multiple photographs and color profiles. Look back over the aircraft’s career in the French Air Force, and its exports to the Israeli, Indian and Salvadorian air forces.
