Hi TOPHE
between the br 790 and br 792, I read in a very old
"AVIATION MAGAZINE" That the project BR 791 was
a version of the 790 with a Gnome et Rhone 14 "Mars"
660 hp engine. Never build

And what would be the armament of these projects? On the drawing I see 6-7 holes on the front fuselage. So maybe 2-3x20mm and 4x7.5mm MG's? or 1x20mm, 2x12.7mm and 4x 7.5mm MG's?

Big task of the day was to make some sense of the mess that was this and a few other pre-war Bréguet-related topics.

We now have separate topics for airliners/transports, combat types and flying boats.

As usual, only the types that are sufficiently documented/developed deserve their own thread (several loners were therefore merged into either of these three generic topics — until of course we get enough material to grant them separate status).

"Early" combat Bréguet aircraft topics are now as follows:
For other (non-combat) Bréguet aircraft, see:

And you can see one among 10000 reasons why France lost and collapsed in 1940... so many variants when the much needed Breguet 693s were only 80 to try and stop the panzers in Gembloux and Tongres and Namur and later, at Sedan. With 60% loss rates, soon there was only a couple of dozens ones...

If I may, I seem to recall that the Br 693 had one 20 mm cannon (on one side) and four machine guns in the nose which, if memory serves right, could be tilted downward a bit when conducting an attack at very low level.

Incidentally, at one point in 1938 or 1939, a Canadian maker of railway rolling stock, National Steel Car Corporation of Malton, Ontario, was planning to produce 144 or so examples of the Bréguet attack aircraft - possibly the Br 695, which had Pratt & Whitney R-1535 Twin Wasp jr. engines, which would have been easier to get that the French engines of the Br 693. The British Air Ministry more or less, dare I say, sabotaged the project to keep the Canadian aircraft industry to itself. National Steel Car, which was going to build Westland Lysander army cooperation aircraft, got an additional but relatively small British order for its trouble.

Stay safe.

Actually, the Bre 693 AB2 only had two, forward-firing 7.5 mm nose guns (with the single 20 mm HS 404 set off to starboard). The other two MAC 1934 machine guns were fired by the rear gunner/radio operator - one was on an Alkan 220 or 224 flexible mount, the other fixed to fire obliquely rearward and downward for strafing. Late-production aircraft had two additional MAC 1934s on 'wobble-mounts', one fixed to fire aft from the rear of each engine nacelle.

On the proposed 144 Canadian-built Bréguets, National Steel Car was originally partnered with another Canadian firm which eventually dropped out. Any idea who that second company was?

Many thanks for correcting me.

As far as the other Canadian firm initially interested in the Bréguet project is concerned, I have to say I have found no info.
