About This File
In 1945, 114 P-63C were delivered to the French Air Force (Armée de l'Air), but they arrived too late to see service in World War II.
They however saw service during the First Indochina War before being replaced in 1951.
Initially the French Kingcobras were deployed to Algeria.
Fighter squadron (Groupe de Chasse) 2/6 "Travail", previously equipped with P-39 Airacobras, received their Kingcobras on 18 July at Casablanca;
the pilots were surprised by the higher landing speed of their new aircraft.
The Kingcobra were scrambled to Indochina when the insurgency broke.
Only 60 Kingcobras were operational in Indochina in January 1950, mainly because the Americans refused to supply spare parts.
Starting in February 1951, the squadrons equipped with Kingcobra started to receive Grumman F8F Bearcats as replacements.
Most Kingcobras were mothballed by July. The last flight of a Kingcobra in Indochina took place on September 6, 1951.
