This sleek fighter of Belgian designer Alfred Renard was powered by a 1.050 hp Rolls-Royce Merlin II engine giving it a maximum speed of 545 km/h at altitude. Unfortunately no series production was ordered before the German invasion of Belgium. Wearing Belgian military roundels together with the civilian registration OO-ATK the Renard R-38 was extensively tested by Sabca chief-test pilot Burniat.
