Dear Boys & Girls, here is a photograph I've found in my collection (origin unknown) of the fabulous Br.482 at Toulouse in 1952 in a sorry state......

Hi Justo!

This is Bregeut 480 - precursor of 4-engined Type 482.
Has been built, but never perform any flights due to insufficient power.
Nice shape, much morepleasnat, then earlier Bregeut designs.

According to Jean Cunys "Les Avions Breguet it is a version the Br.482, which should
have been powered by two Hispano-Suiza 24Z and fitted with a rear turret SAMM AB 810.
As the AdlA wasn't interested in the type any more, it remained a project.

Hi!
Bre 480 outside engine nacelles have large air intake, but inside engine nacelles have no air intake. Why?

I would guess that its like the Pe-8, 2 radiators in one duct.
