Built to fulfill a French requirement for an aircraft to operate in policing duties in the French African Colonies the R-16 lost out to the Bloch 120. It was used by the Commander 5th Aerial Region of North Africa as a personal transport and it was seen at Cannes in 1937 where it had been adapted to carry passengers.
