This aircraft was the first design made by Frits Koolhoven in service of the NVI (Nederlandse Vliegtuig Industrie = Dutch Aircraft Industry). The aircraft, a hunter- reconnaissance aircraft, was shown in public at the air-show at Paris in 1923.
The flying qualities proofed to be disappointing, so a second, much improved prototype was built.
The French factory Etablissement Buscaylet-De Monge received a license. The first and only French aircraft, designation M.101C-2, built, was tested but the French air force, but no order followed.
