    A bit too much for me, but I suppose it cannot be confused with an allied aircraft marauding North Africa in 1942, maybe that is the reason.



    As usual excellent work there Clave !!

    Dewoitine ace Pierre Le Gloan

    Pierre Le Gloan was one of those men who had a natural talent for flying. Having gained his wings in 1932 at the age of 19, by the outbreak of war he was an Adjutant-chef in the 5eme Escadrille of Groupe de Chasse III/6, Flying Morane-Saultier MS.406C-1 fighters from Chartres, as part of the air defence of Paris and the lower Seine.

    On the 23 November 1939, le Gloan and another pilot successfully shot down a Dornier near Verdun on his first contact with the enemy. A second Dornier fell to his guns on the 2nd March 1940, and during the Battle of France he accounted for two Heinkel He IIIs before his squadron was transferred to Luc in the South of France re-equipping with the superb Dewoitine D.520 to counter the impending Italian invasion.

    On the 13 June 1940 Le Gloan shared two Fiat BR20 bombers, and two days later when a large force of Italian bombers were reported in the area, he led the mission that was to make his name famous.

    Flying D.520 ("No.277") the patrol soon encountered a force of bombers escorted by Fiat CR42 fighters. With his usual aggressiveness, Le Gloan led the other French pilots into the attack. Within 45 minutes Le Gloan had shot down four CR42 fighters (two shared) and a BR20.

    A record of five kills in a single mission led to his immediate promotion to Sous Lieutenant.
    After the fall of France GC III/6, as part of the Vichy air-force, he was sent to Algiers, and from there to the Lebanon where Le Gloan continued to knock up his victories (but this time against France's former Ally-England). By 5th July 1941 Le Gloan's total had reached 18, including five RAF Hurricanes and a Gladiator. On the 9th September 1941, Le Gloan was promoted to Lieutenant when GC III/6 returned to North Africa. During the "Torch" landings in November 1941 bad weather kept the D.520s on the ground until after the Vichy surrender.



    The surviving Vichy pilots were transferred to the Free French and Le Gloan became the Commander of 3eme Escadrille "Rousillon" on 11 August 1943 equipped with Bell P39N Airacobras engaged in coastal patrols. On such a patrol on the 11th September his wingman spotted that Le Gloan's aircraft was emitting black smoke.



    Soon the faulty engine failed completely, and Le Gloan attempted to glide to a belly landing on the water. Unfortunately his drop tank failed to release and as the aircraft touched down it exploded in a fireball from which the gallant ace had no hope of escape.

    Thanks. I must add that Le gloan was the best frech ace flying Frech aircrafts, one must remember that even Clostermann is the numbers one with 33 victories claimed ( several sources dispute that) he achieved all with british made fighters ( spitfires, Typhoon, Tempest)

    some more images:

    More on German Markings:








    The Luftwaffe used Dewoitines in the auxiliary/training squadrons JG 101 and JG 105 based in south France.

    I much prefer the D521. Merlin engined variant. Prototype was begun, but never completed flight testing to qualify to enter service.

    Clave, beautiful images, very nicely rendered, as is all your work.

    Well Done!

    The design of the devotine looks very similar to the early Yaks or a Lagg 3, But I think the Devotine was a more modern all metal contruction?



    Beautiful renderings, is it your work Clave?

    Did one wish to enter into the design technicalities, the Lavochkin designs share some commonalities with the MS405, the Arsenal VG33-VG39 series, and the Dewoitine520 family. However, the Laggs were schemed around the use of woods, whereas the D520 family was intended to be all-metal, as with the Spitfire.

    There is a certain small amount of inferred evidence to suggest the Soviets gained much knowledge of French aircraft constructional techniques during the nationalisation of the aircraft industry phase of events, in which communist sypmpathisers/agents not only fomented industrial relations troubles such as strikes, but sent design schematics to Moscow.

    That's because the British passed the Merlin mountings schematics to the French, who, with very little redesign were able to establish parameters allow the HS Ycrs (numerous and headache-inducing version and model and submodel numbers) Series engines to be substitutable with the Merlin. The Supposed ancestor of the D520 is the D510, but when one looks at that aircraft, the influence of the (roughly 6 months later) Spitfire is evident in the D520.
