A three-seater[1] flying boat developed in the Tricolore country.
Though rather large, slow, and not cutting edge, it is sturdily built.
The M Model modified for shipboard use was deployed and operated from the Richelieu-class and other mainline combat ships.
Please equip it on French ships!


Seaplane Seaplanes are the main aircraft type used by non-carrier ships (mainly battleships, cruisers, and auxiliaries).

Reconnaissance AircraftReconnaissance AircraftLarge Reconnaissance AircraftSpLand-based Reconnaissance AircraftLBReconnaissance SeaplaneReconNight Reconnaissance Seaplane are planes that:

Night Reconnaissance Seaplane Night Recons have the ability to trigger Night Contact.

  • The scouting phase animation will not show up like day battles; instead, the night recon plane's animation is played in the enemy fleet's radar (as seen in this picture).
  • Acts as an Reconnaissance Seaplane too in day battle (with activation rates proportionally lower with the Line of Sight stat).
  • [Bug] In a Combined Fleet situation, if a ship in the fleet equipped with a night scout is evacuated from the combined fleet using the Fleet Command Facility, the night recon can still trigger and activate as the fleet proceeds onward and enters a night battle.
