Progressive developments of the VG 33 under test in
1940 included the VG 34, flown on 20 January 1940 with
a 910hp Hispano-Suiza 12Y45 engine, and the VG 35
with a 1000hp Hispano-Suiza 12Y51 which flew on 25
February 1940. The former attained a maximum speed
of 575km/h at 6200m during
tests, and the airframes and armament of both the
VG 34 and VG 35 were identical to those of the VG 33. A
third development, the VG 36 flown on 14 May 1940,
had a similar 1000hp HS12Y51 to that of the VG 35, but
embodied some redesign of the rear fuselage into which a shallower, wider radiator bath was faired.
Armament of the VG 36 comprised one 20mm HS 404
cannon and four 7.5mm MAC 1934 M39 machine guns.
