It was WW2 misinformation. There's no Caudron plane named like this.

Cheers

Bit rectification...

The Caudron C.920 (not CR) was a 1941 project for a light transport
or fast liason aircraft.
Some sources say it was inspired by the Messerschmitt-Caudron MeC-164.
Plane was of hight wing configuration and the planned power plants
were two Argus As 420 of 320Hp.
Total weight :5 200kg
radius of action :1 200km
load:1 340kg.

planned versions : postal aircraft
trainer
transport
construction of a mock-up in 1/1 scale was started.

Hi

In Les avions Caudron-Renault, Collection Docavia, Editions Larivière, Mihaly-Robinso, 2001, page 284-285 :

There was the first C.920 project in 1941 (ref. builder : 8 955 and 8 956)

This project was interesting for the germans and this gave the second Caudron C.920-MeC 164 project (ref. builder : 9731 to 9734). The prototype was not finished in 1942 when the germans choose the Siebel Si-204.

Hi,

the Caudron designed the CR-920,it was twin engined
high wing monoplane with nose wheel,they spoke about
it in Flightglobal,but no drawing to it.
I've attached drawings of the Caudron C.920 (including the C.920-X and C.920-Y stretched variants) for convenience, if anyone is curious about what the C.920 looked like.
