Origins and context

At the end of the war, France was considerably behind in the field of piston engines. On the other hand, in the emerging field of jet engines, it was able to join the other nations. The victors were interested in the achievements of Germany, a pioneer in this field. The French specialists, sent to the United States and Great Britain recommended that the country should first make up for lost time by cooperating with these countries, and then engage in strictly national production. However, the French Air Ministry preferred to have a French-designed aircraft right away.

Believing that he could play a role in jet aviation, Marcel Dassault obtained from the Ministry of the Air the possibility of participating in the interceptor fighter competition. He felt that he had an opportunity, provided he did not fall into the trap of building aircraft with unreasonable ambitions.

First flight

The first sketches of the aircraft were released in October 1947. The first contract for the study, production, and supply of three interceptor fighters was signed by Marcel Dassault on December 30. Construction of the prototype began on April 7, 1948, only six months after the first drawings.

The first production Ouragan flew at Mérignac on 20 December 1951, piloted by Kostia Rozanoff. Production was divided between Dassault and the various national aircraft manufacturing companies. The final assembly is done at Dassault in Mérignac. The first Air Force unit to be equipped was the 12th Wing at Cambrai in November 1952. It was the first jet to be designed and built in France. The Ouragan equipped the Patrouille de France for two years (1955 and 1956).
