Comments there always appreciated.
Lioré et Olivier LeO.20 was first flown in 1927 and produced in series of 320, with some being delivered to Romania and Brazil. By mid-1930s they were gradually transferred to auxilary duties.

In 1928 French Air Force demanded a heavy multi-role aircraft that could perform roles of bomber, reconnaissance aircraft and long-range escort fighter. One of the designs was Amiot 140, first flown in 1931. In the meantime Air Force revised it's expectations, concentrating on bomber role, leading to Amiot 142 and Amiot 143 prototypes (with different engines: Hispano-Suiza 12Y and Gnome-Rhône 14K respectively). Eventually Amiot 143 entered production that lasted from 1935 to 1937 (with 138 produced), followed by prototype of Amiot 144 with retractable undercarriage in 1936. Amiot 143's were quickly rendered obsolete by rapid advances on aviation technology in that era, but remained in front-line service until 1940, though by that time they were increasingly transferred to auxiliary duties.

Bloch MB.200 was built as a response to requirement for a medium day and night bomber and first flown in 1933. 208 aircraft were built in France beginning in 1934, and later license was bought by Czechoslovakia which built 124 more (some of them eventually ended up in Bulgaria), plus at least one was sold to Republican Spain. By 1939 French MB.200 were mostly relegated to auxilairy duties, although during Allied invasion of Syria and Lebanon (then under Vichy French control) some were used operationally by Vichy Air Force.
Many thanks to PomboCZ for his initial version of this aircraft.

Bloch MB.210 Verdun was France's first low-wing monoplane bomber with retractable undercarriage, first flown in 1934 and entered production in 1936 (with about 257 produced). It equipped 12 bomber groups of French Air Force, though by 1940 they were already in process of being replaced by more modern types. Still, some of these aircraft remained in combat use until armistice. Additionaly at least 3 were sold to Republican Spain and 10 (out of 24 ordered) to Romania. Also, some sources claim that 6 were sold to Bulgaria by Germans.

Potez 54 (540) reconnaissance/bomber was a contemporary of Amiot 143 and Bloch MB.200, first flown in 1933 and introduced into service a year later. Some 192 were produced, with few being delivered to Republican Spain and Romania.
By 1940 they were generally relegated to auxiliary duties.
