This third title in the “French Wings” series tells the story of the Breguet 27 aircraft in the French Air Force. The Breguet 27 was a 1930s French biplane military reconnaissance aircraft, built for the Armée de l'Air (French Air Force) and also exported to Venezuela and China. Breguet 27s continued in military service through the outbreak of World War II, still equipping three Gropes at the time of the initial German offensive.

The design, acquisition and operations of these aircraft is told in detail, illustrated with many previously unpublished photos. Color schemes and markings are described and illustrated.


"Author José Fernandez deftly distills all in just 80 illuminating pages – and expertly unearths rare nuggets like, believe it or not, Mureaux 113 Cn2 night fighters. Historian Amaru Tincopa further flavors the account with fascinating notes on Peruvian Potez 390s. Dozens of photos season the study. And color profiles by Teodor Liviu Morosanu make me wish for more models of these fascinating French aircraft. Just fact-check Morosanu's otherwise excellent art: some deviate – ever so slightly – from accompanying reference shots."
