Boulton Paul P.80 Superstrand project : anyone know more about this project ?
I am looking more technical data about it , but for now i haven't found any other informations except:
1) 2 engines with 700 HP
( i have insert a modified image of Overstrand , without carriage : a probably profile of Superstand ),
surely project was abandoned ,probably because as project was already obsolete and there was not great difference about his performance !
ps: there are my suppositions !
