Breguet 1050 Alize

This three-seat carrier-borne anti-submarine hunter-killer was derived from the 960 Vultur naval strike aircraft. The first prototype flew on 6 October 1956 and was followed by five pre-production aircraft. Orders for 75 production Alizes were placed by the French Navy and the first was officially delivered on 20 May 1959. Sixty-five were in service by May 1961. A further contract for Alizes was received subsequently from the Indian Navy and 12 were delivered, plus two ex-French aircraft. Two French Navy squadrons operated Alizes on board the carriers Foch and Clemenceau.

They were 3 French Navy fighting squadrons flying Alizes, named "Flottille 4F", "Flottille 6F" and "Flottille 0F", plus some service units. For the later, see flottille9f.net /cd /alize-car.htm
