MARCEL BLOCH AVIONS TYPE 150 to 157: Société des avions Marcel Bloch is a French aeronautical company founded in 1929 by Marcel Bloch (1892-1996). Although he changed his name to Marcel Dassault in 1946, it was under this name that the Dassault group became one of the world leaders in military aeronautics. In the 1930s, the arms race leading up to the Second World War was intense, particularly in the aeronautical sector. Rapid technological advances in aviation played a crucial role in military operations at the start of the war. In France, during the period 1939 - 1940, the French air force had several types of aircraft at its disposal for the defense of the skies, including those produced by Marcel Bloch's production lines. France was preparing for the Battle of France, which took place from May to June 1940. The Bloch MB.150 and its derivatives MB.151 to MB.157 were French military aircraft developed by the Société anonyme des avions Marcel Bloch, and built in series at the Châteauroux plant. On August 18, 1938, the prototype - a single-seat fighter derived from the Bloch MB-150 - renamed the Bloch 151, made its maiden flight. It was a new, heavily modified version, an all-metal single-seater. Thanks to engineer Lucien Servanty, this specificity made it possible to mass-produce these aeroplanes, combined with modern manufacturing processes. With a total weight of 2,522 kg, the fighter is powered by a Gnome et Rhône 14N-35 direct drive star engine developing 930 hp at 4,400 m, and enabling a top speed of 460 km/h at 4,000 m. Moreover, in 1939, it was the only fighter in the world to be fitted with 2 Hispano-Suiza HS-404 20 mm cannons firing outside the propeller field. A total of 750 MB 150 series Blochs have been built since the date of first flight on May 4, 1937.
