The Société des Avions Marcel Bloch was a French aircraft manufacturer of military and civilian aircraft that changed its name to Dassault Aviation after the end of World War II.

It was founded by Marcel Bloch (hence "MB" in the aircraft designations) who changed his name to Marcel Dassault (as in char d'assaut, French for "assault tank") due to persecution of Jews under the Vichy French regime.
