204 GOR339 supersonic tactical strike recce.Two Olympus.
204F  F155T  supersinic two-seat fighter version.


Thanks for the list Hesham,  but I think GOR339 was issued at least 2 years after the 1957 Defense Review axe cancelled the F155T and other projects. I can't see how an aircraft designed later than 1957 can be designated 'F155T'.

However, I do remember reading in a 60's book on Bristol aircraft of a 204 derived aircraft being offered to Canada as a 'Commonwealth Fighter'. However, the illustration was just of the GOR339 project.

Did the Bristol Superfreighter variant get a special Type 170 sub-designation?

Hi Folks,

I'm doing a bit of research for some new pages at www.adf-serials.com.au and am looking for any info and drawings of both:

  • Bristol 179B (I see we already have a drawing of the 179A - very nice!)
    Bristol 195
    Shorts PD.16/1

All three types were offered and considered by the RAAF during the selection process for a C-47 replacement in 1954-55.

Ultimately, the C-130A was selected for RAAF service and 12 were purchased.

All help will be acknowledged online.

Many thanks

Brendan
