Essentially a two-seat derivative of the Mureaux 170, the Mureaux 180 employed a similar all-metal structure, but a frontal radiator was provided for the 690hp Hispano-Suiza 12 Xbrs engine. The sole prototype was first flown on 10 February 1935, but in April the original single fin-and-rudder assembly was replaced by twin fins and rudders, and an HS 12 Xcrs engine with provision for a 20mm Hispano-Suiza cannon firing through the propeller shaft was installed, engine output being unchanged. Proposed armament comprised one 20mm engine-mounted cannon, two wing-mounted 7.7mm MAC machine guns and one 7.7mm gun on a flexible mounting in the rear cockpit.
