At the beginning of the Cuny book Les chasseurs Dassault Ouragans, Mystères et Super-Mystères there is some extras for the 500, 600 and 650, and 800 :

-MD 500 : four Nene engines, 40 tons, 60 passengers for 2000 km, wings and fins looked likes those of the Ouragan (1948-49)

My dear Deltafan,

in Ailes 7/1948,they mentioned that,the MD-500 was a twin engined tourist aircraft Project,who
we can believe it ?.

This issue of Les Ailes 7/1948 shows that this MD-500 project was : Grand Tourisme - 2 x 200 hp - already cancelled.

Probably, as this first project was cancelled, the designation MD-500 was reused for the project that we knew before (MD 500 : four Nene engines, 40 tons, 60 passengers for 2000 km, wings and fins looked likes those of the Ouragan (1948-49)).

OK my dear Deltafan,

you meant the MD-500 re-allocated.
