Sud-Ouest SO-4050 Vautour II






Last updated on: March 11, 2016

149 of these twin-engined all-metal fighter bombers were built, serving in both French and Israeli Air Forces for some time before being replaced by more modern planes.

This is a work in progress and any help would be appreciated. Information on these planes is rather difficult to locate online and this work will remain incomplete unless you the readers offer to help me. Please feel free to pass along any information that you might have.

At the end of this page is a list of people who have graciously offered their help. Thank you all very much!
