Of course I know that series very well,


I think that's not the author means,he means the aircraft or project after WW2,because he
didn't write anything after NC.2234,except Cargo/Transport,without any description,and we
know the old designation (NC.2234) was very famous aircraft.

In the same document, the NC.3511 is described as a project with flattened air intakes, that was not built because the NC.3510 with round intakes was preferred.

NC 160  heavy single-seat fighter with two engines and coaxial propellers

The NC.160 was a dive bomber project, designed by Deteix and Le Muhot.

There was also a NC.170 of unknown specification that became the SO.3000, and a NC.180/181 transport plane with two Hispano 12 Z engines, that became the SO.3010. Both projects were designed by the ex-Farman team led by Marcel Roca. The projects were renamed when the design teams moved to Cannes under SNCASO administration.

The source for all this is an article by Philippe Ricco in Avions no.207 (Sep. 2015) about the NC.3021 Belphegor, which shows a picture of a windtunnel model of the NC.160, and drawings of windtunnel models of the SO.3000/3010/3020.

In Le Fana no.389 (Apr. 2002), Michel Borget says that the SO.3020 was originally called NC.190, but Philippe Ricco does not mention this in his more recent article.

NC 3020  unconfirmed designation for SO 3020
NC 3021  Belphégor development of SO 3020
I'm convinced that the name NC.3020 was not used.
In the article in Avions no.207, there is a reproduction of an original document which describes how the SO.3020 project with twin Hispano 12 Z, whose construction had started during the war, was modified with DB.610 engine and renamed NC.3021 in the same move.

My dear Adrien,

it's so weird,the NC.160 as a heavy fighter project,maybe called dive bomber/heavy
combat aircraft.

From JAWA 1947,

very strange,they mentioned NC.260 as a commercial aircraft,but we know it was
an jet interceptor ?.
