Società Anonima Nieuport-Macchi, Verese, was best known for their flying boats. The company was incorporated on 1 May 1913, though it had built its first aircraft in 1912.[1] Aircraft from the Great War or shortly thereafter include:


  1. Two M.3's were refitted with Fiat A.12 engines as the M.4, but the project was abandoned in favor of the M.9.
  2. The M.6 prototype was based on the M.5 with different strut arrangements, but it was abandoned after showing no advantages.
