ANF-Mureaux 170

Designed to meet the requirements of the 1930 single-seat fighter programme which specified the use of a supercharged engine and a maximum speed of at least 350km/h, the Mureaux 170 was powered by a 690hp Hispano-Suiza 12 Xbrs 12-cylinder liquid-cooled engine and carried an armament of two 7.7mm MAC (Vickers) machine guns in the wings. Of all-metal construction, the Mureaux 170 was first flown in November 1932, a second prototype, built as a private venture, flying in March 1934. Several changes were made to the size and positioning of the radiator bath, and the fighter was rejected primarily because of the poor visibility from the cockpit for landing.
