Aircraft Not Used

by the French Army

This page gives details of some of the aircraft types that were offered or promised to the French Army but not delivered, cancelled official orders, and types have been falsely reported as being in service.

Aerospatiale AS.365F Dauphin 2
Eleven reportedly in use, but actually with the Aeronavale.

De Havilland HC-6 Twin Otter
Eight reportedly in use, but actually with the Air Force.

Sikorsky H-34
Numerous sources mention in vague terms the use of the H-34 by the ALAT, but there seems to be much confusion with the H-34s used by the Air Force (Armee de l’Air), especially in the Algerian War. In fact, none were actually used by the ALAT.

Stinson L-1 Voyager
Some reportedly used by ALAT, but none recorded. Some may have served with the Free French Air Force, but not the Army.
