The Br.30T twin-fuselage may be interesting to see. Alas I have not the Docavia #6 "Les avions Bréguet 1940-71" (see http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collection_Docavia )

Hesham, in Personal Message I promised you I will check my Trait d'Union collection for the Bréguet part of Charles Claveau's articles "French aircraft 1919-45". In the alphabetical list alas, it was written "BRÉGUET: this subject is so big, we will make a special issue about this subject only". Alas the next issue I have was continuing the list, but... later, among the issues I have: issue #172 April-March 1997 "Louis Bréguet aircraft 1919-1945". This is very complete, I fear there is too many 3-view drawings to scan and post them all here. I am going to make a list at least, or I may send it to Hesham to enjoy a full month or two...
Below, I present the Br30T which is the same as the art above it seems:

The 3-view drawings of projects in Trait d’Union #172 are Bréguet:
850 (28-engines, 200 passengers, twin-fuselage 1941)
(The Br 850 is featured in my book Forked Ghosts).
My book is free to download at http://cmeunier.chez-alice.fr/Free_EoFG_MV.htm but here is the 3-view from Trait d'Union #172:

The name Capricorne was for the Br.1011, civilian stratospheric, and then its name was changed to 1012 yes.

Fabulous Tophe; I've waited all my life to see a drawing of the Capricorne! It makes the Lockheed Constellation look like a piece of trash :eek:

Oops, that hurts deeply :-[

Otherwise, love the outrageous designs by Breguet. 28 engines for the 850! Could have been a transatlantic nightmare for the 200 pass. :)

Don't take it personally; it's just a figure of speech. The Constellation is hard to beat......

Br.30T was twin fuselage and powered by eight Renault 550 hp engines,it look like
the Bleriot 125.
At last, the Br.30T did not look much like the Blériot 125, but I just found the patent for this Bl 125 of 1930/31:

Hi all
I read that the first Breguet 19 project was a twin engined plane
show at the "7eme fete aerienne de Paris" during november 1921
2 Bugatti four bladed propellers !? cancelled for a more conventional
project that we know...........
Do you know something about this project ??

From Trait d'Union #172 March-April 1997:
There were 2 parallel engines driving a common 4-blade propeller. Replaced by a single engine before the first flight.

It was not a project only ...
But the obviously jet powered derivative shown above the cut away certainly was. Any
more information about it ? Cannot see any mention of the propulsion in the description.

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" transport Bréguet aircraft topics are now as follows:

Landplanes:
Flying boats (both civilian and military):
And here are the topics about th other types which are neither combat nor transport:

Helicopters:
Oddballs:Hope this helps!
