Some clarifications:
The early sequence used for monoplanes up to XII or XIII was Nieuport's own numbering. This was then replaced by the SFA numbering system. The first (confirmed) aircraft in the SFA sequence was the 10 - the 9 for Russia was the designation the Russians used and was not necessarily Nieuport's. To distinguish between the late monoplanes, (X/XI/XII/XIII) Nieuport added a suffix, so the 10 "biplane" was Xb, the 11 was the XIb and the 12 was the XIIb - which seems to have only gone until XIII, at which time they dropped the b. Combined with the French SFA also using a designation system for classifying aircraft which assigned a B to the 11, that became the XI bB - or when pronounced in French, bebe.

Nieuport's drawings used the format of XXnnn, where XX was the model number (say 27) and the nnn was the part number, so that the base GA drawing is 27000, but the rudder (which didn't change from the 24) is part 24540.

The VII was a variant of the VI, ordered by Turkey, only one was delivered, while the Turks also captured a French VI or X.H. There is a lot of confusion over the difference between the VI.H and the X.H (late pre-war monoplane floatplane) - there is the possibility that hasn't been explored that one of those designations may have been Nieuport's (X.H) and the other the SFA's (VI) for the same aircraft. Some but not all of the aircraft identified as X.Hs have constant chord wings. That still needs more research.

A series of purpose-built trainers were assigned designations starting with 8 (probably for the 80hp LeRhone used)- creating:
80: based on the 12, with dual controls
81: based on the 12, with single controls for the rear cockpit only
82: based on the 14/14 E.2
83: based on the 10 E.2
All of these had significant detail differences from the original operational versions before them.

Because of the similarity of many designs, the wing areas (in square meters) were commonly used to describe various types during the war -
13m (or mq): Nieuport 11 and 16
15m: 17/17bis/21/23/24/24bis/27
18m: 10 and 83
23m: 12/80/81
30m: 14/82

Then there is this not-so little gem - a triplane bomber with no known designation:

The IV.G was based on the III.A but fitted with a Gnome instead of the Anzani - both are of similar size and share the same three Vee undercarriage, while the IIs all had a pair of Vees.

I have never come across a 36 or 105 (sorry), but there are several possibilities for the V (I favour the Nieuport-Dunne, "Carton-Pate" pusher, or another monoplane) - but I could not say which is most likely.

Hi,

I think I get NiD-36,from L'Aeronautique journal and TU magazine,maybe I am right;

NiD-36 was a two-seat torpedo bomber airplane of 1920/21,powered by one 500 hp Salmson engine,two
were under construction for AT-2 category,but with terminating the program made then unfinished.
