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.

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:-
