The ANF Les Mureaux 190 was a French prototype light fighter aircraft. In response to a program created by the French Minister of Air, the ANF Les Mureaux 190 was designed by André Brunet as a light fighter. The ANF Les Mureaux 190 was an all-metal monoplane, and was first tested in July 1936, then taken to the 15th Paris Air Show in late November,[1] where it was asserted to be very manoeuvrable. However, less than a year later, the project was abandoned due to the poor quality of its engine.

The ANF Les Mureax 190 was powered by a 450 hp Salmson 12 Vars inverted V-12 engine. its proposed armament consisted of a 20 mm (0.79 in) engine-mounted cannon, and two 7.7mm (.30-caliber) wing-mounted machine guns.[2]
