Dear Boys and Girls, here is part of an article in French about the Bréguet Br.945 twin-engine STOL light military transport "project". The two Turboméca Turmo III-D turboprops were linked together through gearboxes and transmission shafts to drive four large diameter propellors; only the inboard engine nacelles contained the engines and the outer nacelles only contained gearboxes and transmission shafts. The Bréguet Br.945 remained a "project"......

This is part of a larger article about the contenders for a 1960 Armée de l'Air competition for an army co-operation light transport and the other contenders were:-

Avions Marcel Dassault MD-415 Communauté (prototype).
Max Holste MH-260 Super Broussard (prototype).
Max Holste MH-261 Super Broussard (project).

The article comes from the 6th January 1961 issue of Les Ailes......
