MSrE stands for the Müegyetemi Sportrepülö Egyesület or (Budapest) Technical University Sport Fliers Association. The acronym is sometimes listed as 'MSE' (as in the Golden Years of Aviation civilian aircraft registration lists).

Wikipedia lists the MSrE series as: L-1, L-2, L-4, BL-5, BL-6, BL-7, L-9, Gerle 12, Gerle 13 , Gerle 14, Gerle 15, BL-16, M-19, M-20, M-21, M-22, M-24, M-25, M-27, M-28, M-29, M-30. But there's a few gaps in that listing.

Earlier MSrE designations are based on designer(s)' initials: So L-x for Árpád Lampich and then BL-xx for joint Antal Bánhidi/Árpád Lampich designs. These were replaced by 'M' for MSrE designations in the same numerical sequence. The an EM-xx designation sequence overlapped with and finally replaced the MSrE M-xx sequence. In this case, 'EM' was short for EMESE - the name of MSrE's Experimental Aircraft Factory Ltd. located at Ferihegy which actually built the aircraft.

Note that the MSrE acronym is pronounced 'emese' in Hungarian. Hence the popular 'name' for the M-20 glider - better-known as the EMESE-B and EMESE-C but not part of the EM-xx designation sequence.

??-10 - (??)

At this point, it is tempting to insert the series of Gerle (Turtle Dove) light aircraft designed by Antal Bánhidi since their sub-type numbers seem to fill the gap.

MSrE Gerle 11 - H-MAFM
MSrE Gerle 12 - HA-AAE
MSrE Gerle 13 - HA-AAI
MSrE Gerle 14 - HA-AAN, HA-NAG, HA-NAH
MSrE Gerle 15 - HA-BEO
MSrE Gerle 16 - HA-BLO
MSrE Gerle 17 - HA-NAC

The one fly in the ointment of inserting the Gerle series is the duplication of '16'.

BL-16 - 1935 2-seat trainer/glider tug biplane, x 1*
- BL-16: 1 x 110 hp WM/Siemens Sh.12, span ?? m
- * HA-RIS, http://gliders-fega.fw.hu/BL-16.jpg

Thanks Hesham. Yes, the Lampich NL-XXII belongs to a separate designation series. And this Austria built aircraft was a powered 2-seat biplane trainer -- nothing at all like the MSrE's M-22 sailplane.

The NL stand for Neustädter/Lampich NL-XXII because these aircraft were built in Austria by WNF or the Wiener Neustädter Flughafenbetriebs GmbH (later Wiener Neustädter Flugzeugwerke GmbH, formerly the Phoenix Flugzeugwerk). Hungarian sources refer to this aircraft as the NL XXII/37.

That said, WNF did produce other MSrE designs in Austria -- the Árpád Lampich's L-9 Veréb and Antal Bànhidi's Gerle 16/17/18. During WWII, WNF built Bf-109s and Hopfner/Hirtenberg designs (speaking of which, does anyone know the more streamlined WNF Wn 11C ?).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_military_aircraft_of_Germany_by_manufacturer#Wiener_Neustadter_Flugzeugwerk_.28WNF.29

BTW, Lampich's less powerful biplane trainer, the NL XXI/36 was exported to Hungary (HA-VAG in 1939), as were two NL XXII/37s (HA-VAG & HA-VAH).

Hesham, as the Jereb Gábor site shows, nobody really knows what company built Árpád Lampich's 1939 LS-16. So, hard to know if that 'S' in the LS-16 designation stands for. http://gliders-fega.fw.hu/ls-16.html

It doesn't seem to be part of the MSrE or Neustädter designation sequences. And, when Lampich was joined by another designer, his initial came last - eg: the MSrE BL-x series designed with Antal Bánhidi.

Hi,

BL-8 was also two-seat biplane trainer airplane,looks like BL-7,or developed in parallel with it.
M-23 was a glider as I think.
EM-31 Kotlós was a four-seat twin engined tourist airplane,never completed.
EM-32 Kóbor was a two-seat twin engined tourist airplane,also never completed.

If we look to Lampich himself,

he created from L-1 to L-9 for MSrE,then he continued to NL-XXI and NL-XXII light aircraft up to 1937,
but maybe he re-allocated some numbers,just as LS-16 & D-20 Pajtas ?.

Have done hesham. I also took the opportunity to re-format (for clarity) and add a few more details and links.

I can't make much headway with your clippings in Google Translate. I suppose we must wait for a willing Hungarian reader in order to glean more details.

-BL-16 Haris is a two-seat, two-headed school and a hiking machine. It was needed in 1934
a machine that is not just a good school machine, but also a great traveling speed
