The Morane-Saulnier Type H was a somewhat smaller, single-seat version of the Type G, with an 80hp 9-cylinder Le Rhône engine. A couple dozen[note 1] were built for Aviation Militaire, and another 24 were built by Grahame-White for Britain. While their non-trainer service lifetime was brief, they did serve in small numbers in several units until they could be replaced with better models. They were also license-built by Germany and served as the basis of the Pfalz monoplanes.

The V.V. Slyusarenko Aviation Company of Petrograd produced twenty-eight Mos.H's for Russia.[4]
