The Morane-Saulnier Type N Monocoque was one of the earliest fighters, featuring a fixed machine gun firing through the propeller. No synchronizer was used; instead, deflector plates were fitted to the propeller to shunt bullets harmlessly aside. A small number were built by France and intermingled with Type Ls in the second half of 1915. Some were probably built in Russia, though records frequently confuse the Type L, I, and N. About 27 were built and used by the RFC, where the plane was known as the "Morane Bullet".[1]
