The Morane-Saulnier Type I was a Type N with a 110hp Le Rhône 9J engine. It may have been given this designation to avoid confusion with the Type Nbis. It was slightly larger than the Type N and it used a synchronized Vickers machine-gun. It probably saw no service with Aviation Militaire, who had moved their attention to the Nieuport 11, but four were built for RFC Squadron No.60 and at least twenty were sent to Russia.
