All Wikipedia has to say about the Chinese D.510's. Anyone else have any more to add?


"In 1938, 18 Chinese D.510s saw action against the Japanese, including the defense of Chengdu and the Chinese wartime capital Chongqing.[citation needed]"

Dewoitine D.510 in ROCAF Service

Although I am very interested in the history of the ROCAF, I do not have much knowledge. Furthermore, I do not want to clutter up Péricles’s thread, although he may not object if I just make a very few comments.

Ray Wagner, "The Chinese Air Force, 1931-1940," Journal of the American Aviation Historical Society, Vol. 19, No. 3 (3rd Quarter 1974), says Dewoitine built 34 D.510s for China in 1938 (p. 169).

According to Raymond Cheung, Aces of the Republic of China Air Force, Osprey Aircraft of the Aces 126 (Oxford, UK: Osprey Publishing, 2015), D.510s equipped two ROCAF squadron in 1938-39s. In mid-1938, the 41st Pursuit Squadron composed of French volunteers was organized. The squadron was soon disbanded and the aircraft were transferred to the 17th Pursuit Squadron, 5th Pursuit Group, in Kunming, commanded by Captain Chen Tse-lieu. Some D.510s were also flown in combat by cadets of the ROKAF air academy.

The image from Cheung, p. 71, shows the airplane that Pericles’s beautiful model was based on, with other D.510s in 41st PG markings. The aircraft retained the 41-series numbers even after the 41st PS disbanded, so we can’t say for sure what unit they belonged to when this mid-1938 photograph was taken.

For the story of the French volunteers in China (but with only a brief mention of the D.510s) see William Labussiere, "The Truth About the 14th Squadron: Foreign Volunteers in China," translated by Gerry Beauchamp, Journal of the American Aviation Historical Society, Winter 1987: 284-293

Jeff Leng (Doubting Thomas) may be able to add more on this.

Like everyone my earliest recollections of the ROCAF begin with my Dad being a bombardier for the
Chinese air force trained here in the USA and graduating in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Seeing John Wayne in "Flying Tigers" and reading John Toland's book about them too.

It's been fascinating about how many different countries China got aircraft from. I've always thought that they,
the Chinese bought equipment from the US. Seeing the French Dewoitines is new to me as well as reading here
about their action around Chengdu. In Toland's book he does mention the British there in China/Burma,
but he's focusing on the AVG.

I know that my family has a photograph of my Grandfather in Portland Oregon with a pilot and an aircraft at
some airfield there. My mom always said that it was a plane bought by the Chinese community there.
If it did go to China, I've always wondered if it went to flying the Generalismo around.
But I can't confirm that story, its a civilian aircraft, not military.
The plane "looks" like a British Lysander or some high wing metal monoplane with wheel spats.
