One criticism of the Morane-Saulnier Type I was its lack of range, so a version with a second tank and larger wings and tail surfaces came out in the form of the Morane-Saulnier Type V. It was never ordered by Aviation Militaire, but the RFC ordered a test batch of twelve in April 1916. A few were used by No. 3 and 60 squadrons before front-line pilots described it as "doing its best to kill you". The remaining three on the order were canceled and the rest were retired to training duties by Autumn 1916.
