Not from CASA. That's a private design from an engineer

Hi Hesham,
This is a great find!

The name A.M.E. is for Aeronáutica Militar Española. There was a previous A.M.E. VI, a modified copy of the Bristol F.2B, designed by Manuel Bada Vasallo and Arturo González Gil, of which two prototypes and 20 series production aircraft were built in the Talleres de Cuatro Vientos (Cuatro Vientos Workshops).

The project A.M.E. IX was designed by the same Manuel Bada Vasallo, and models were tested in the wind tunnel at Cuatro Vientos, with either Hispano 500 hp or Jupiter VI 420 hp engine.

We are left to wonder if there were other A.M.E. designs.

Hi,

the A.M.E-VIII was a two-seat light bomber and co-operation biplane;

From Aeroplano 37,

was that the same person ?.
No. Díaz is a really common Spanish surname.

The builder of the Díaz Tipo C ('Caza') was Amalio Díaz Fernandez - better-known for his production of wooden propellers at Getafe (and, IIRC, rotor blades for Cierva). The Tipo C fighter was based on a 1917 design begun by Julio Adaro Terradillos (who later produced the Adaro 1.E.7 Chirta prototype.

As for AME involvement with the Tipo C, I see no reason to assume that Amalio Díaz wasn't capable of building this prototype himself.
