Ok Here goes! Looking for name and designation Its a fighter plane
And a Bonus clue!
1: Its development began in 1934
2: Pilot and second prototype were lost.
3: Its final use was as an advanced trainer aircraft in a different country then its origin.
4: it was the first low-wing monoplane design of the company, I work for the company that bought the original manufacture of a different name
5: The guns had a tendency to freeze. Heaters were subsequently added to the guns for high-altitude use
6: It was the first plane designed by the manufacture with an enclosed cockpit and first design with retracting landing gear.
7: Outfitted with a new engine, the second prototype was able to attain a speed of 275 mph
8: It fought in the Phoney war
9: A number of them stationed in Indochina downed several Thai fighters

Sir; my apologies, but hunting season starts in a couple of days and I'm going to be spending the following ten days or so away from phones and computers for most of each day. While I may get to check in every few days, I won't be able to take the lead for a bit. I'm pretty sure I figured this one out a few days ago; and I'll bet there are several others who are close to solving it. In the interim, welcome to the game and enjoy confounding your fellow enthusiasts. Thanks; Ernie P.

15: Although a sturdy and highly maneuverable fighter aircraft it was considered underpowered and weakly armed when compared to its contemporaries.
16: Production had reached a high-point of 147 aircraft during August 1939, before declining as manufacturing efforts were progressively re-directed towards other aircraft
17: Holds the unfortunate distinction of being the least effective french fighter in service during the Battle of France, which was attributed to having relatively low firepower.
18: Its weaknesses were apparent, such as the lack of armoring, frequent gun-jamming, inadequate firepower, slow responsiveness of the guns, unreliable radio units, very high rate of engine wear, corrosion of rudder components, cabin glazing breaking under air pressure during certain manoeuvres, loss of exterior panels due to screws deteriorating rapidly, and the lack of rear-view mirrors.
19: Among the various aviation companies who took interest in the "C1 design" specification to which the potential for a large production order was attached, was French aircraft manufacturer Morena-Saulnier
20: Germany took possession of a large number of this aircraft. The Luftwaffe operated a number of the type for training purposes.
21: Look at clues 4, 6, 11, 19

Some of you might remember that I like to choose rather obscure aircraft...and that being said...fore warned is fore armed
Looking for an aircraft...
1) Single engine
2) Between the wars time frame
3) A "Private Venture" design
